2. But Computers CANNOT be trusted to count votes!
Edited on Mon Jul-12-10 02:55 PM by Bill Bored
And this is exactly what NY will be doing.

We would be much better off with the lever voting machines and a small number of accessible paper ballots counted by hand than what we are getting:

- Nearly ALL ballots counted by software that can't be trusted;
- Only a small fraction of the ballots counted by hand.

Sorry you were not aware of this change sooner when there was more time to fight it.

Nassau County has sued in state and federal courts and is making good progress, but the voters of New York are still not represented in any court, except by the Brennan Center whose complaint only concerns unintentional overvoting -- which was not possible with the lever machines. That's not good enough.
