35. there's an IF in here
First NC does a machine count if there is a close contest.

A candidate CAN request a "sample" hand to eye count. This is done by a
random (I think 3%). if problems are detected it can be expanded to full blown recount.

I don't think this is hard to get, there were full blown hand to eye counts in 2006 in
the NC 08 Congressional contest.

I do not think we had any full hand to eye counts this year.
Just machine.

Sorry. Its part of the law we didn't address in 2005.
