5. Here's another quote from Commissioner Martin
"Im responsible, along with my counterpart, for the accuracy of the vote count, and when I certify an election, Im attesting that the results are accurate. It would be the height of irresponsibility for me to certify results if I couldnt understand, examine, or feel confident in the vote-counting mechanism employed. And I have no reason to be confident about a software-based tabulation of secret ballots. The software might contain an inadvertent error or it might have been hackedyet in neither case would I necessarily be aware that there was a problem."
