45. Look at this: election center task report on the 2004 eleciton, fascinaitng reading.
it seems that now WE are funding them through HAVA. (whihc does not change who set them up and funded them to begin with; it just makes it worse.)

Read how they see elections:

"Very few issues were reported relating to problems with voting machines. the problems were created by people, not machines, and any reform of substance..."

"the consensus of the group was to send an unambigous message that the nation's electoral process was not broken, while simultaneously recognizing that modernization and change are needed."

I'm going to read the rest.
that's just from page one. we NEED electronic voting. We NEED privatization.
(also we need more absentee voting, because it is easy to privatize, and fraud is really really easy. In my county, ES&S processes all absentee voting, sends the ballots to the voters, ES&S machines decide if a voter's signature is or is not the voter's, and that machine has high, medium, and low settings, and then scanners count those ballots." ES&S also owns the voter database. I repeat OWNS the voter registration database. The software is proprietary and belongs to ES&S. It used to be created by the County for the County. But an election center Registrar fixed that.
