80. after further review...

Although the Verified Voting website indicated that all these jurisdictions use scanners, it was arguably ambiguous as to whether all voters use them, and I hesitate to impugn your unnamed locals, so I wanted to check a few other ways.

Here is an actual link to the Mass SOS site (I guess really the "SOC" site), which indicates that Southbridge, Northbridge, and Wilmington all use Accu-Vote optical scanners.

I just got off the phone with the town clerk in Southbridge, who told me that they haven't used the levers since 2003. Sounds right.

It made me wonder what website you could actually have gotten this information from. So I Googled "AVM 50 Lever Automatic." One hit, on That's puzzling, or ironic, or something, because Bev Harris's own analysis of Massachusetts didn't list these as lever machine jurisdictions.

Oh well. It would have been more interesting the other way.
