9. NY watned a lot more bells and whistles.
Edited on Thu Sep-16-10 11:23 PM by Bill Bored
Here they think that because their scanners take digital pics of the ballots, folks may be convinced that the count is correct, or that the pics haven't been doctored. This added several thousand bucks to the cost of each scanner. Would we have been better off with M100s? Not necessarily, but at least with the older technology, there would be less that go wrong and perhaps greater reliance on paper ballots instead of electronic ballot image files (as with DREs).
