3. None. Absolutely zero.
Edited on Sun Apr-18-10 06:51 PM by Yellow Horse
The election officials I know would prefer swallowing splintered glass shards while gouging their own eyes out with red hot pokers to going back to hand-counted paper ballots.

Even in the tiniest counties.

If there is no money to replace the present machines (especially DRES) with voter-marked paper ballots and optical scanners, you will see the vendors move in fast with a handy-dandy, affordable solution -- Internet Voting. I am sure they are licking their chops already, even as we speak.

Mark my words. And when it's too late, remember what I said when the horrors of Internet Voting make even you wish you could go back in time and support the Holt bill for paper ballots and optical scanners.
