9. An unaudited, unrecountable OpScan system is no better than a paperless DRE.
Edited on Wed Dec-22-10 01:25 AM by Wilms
It's about time we put an end to the drivel you speak. LOOK at what just happened in NY State. Their very first, Lipari inspired, paper ballot election was inadequately audited with no course to a full recount in a razor thin margined race that handed state senate control to the repubs with judge's blessing. FL2000/OH2004 much?

Nationwide, audits are BS. And so is the rhetoric from the various, self-proclaimed, "verified" election types. You've got lots of people all warm and fuzzy about their UNVERIFIED paper ballot vote when it's effectively the SAME AS a DRE.

Quit muddying the waters with your Liparian snake oil. You don't "first" get paper ballots and then cross your fingers they're properly audited. You have the paper AND the audit/recount laws IN PLACE or you've got a DRE and a bunch of people who don't know what they are talking about because they believe liars.

Everyone knows your hair's on fire. And those who STUDY the ENTIRE system know your pants are aflame as well. Get off your meme. You're a danger to democracy.

Computers and judges decide elections in NY State thanks to people like you.
