4. Hmmm. ES&S in NYC and some other large counties. Other new machines elsewhere.

NY Dems have not done much to protect our rights however. They could have fought the feds and given back the HAVA money to be used to replace the lever machines, but they didn't.

They could have passed more rigorous election auditing laws but they didn't (they've had control of the Legislature for 2 years).

It was the height of arrogance for them to think they could manage a computerized voting system, along with the Repubs of course.

Say what you will about lever voting machines not having paper trails, but they are NOT computers and they were designed to make it very difficult to rig elections, unlike the new stuff.

Best hope now is the bipartisan lawsuit brought by Nassau County against the state to keep the lever voting machines. And Columbia County is doing a 100% hand count of the paper ballots.

The Brennan Center is still trying to figure out how to make scanners work like levers.
