    Everyone everywhere. It costs big money to buy the machines and reprogram them for every election, the part I think people seem to forget about. I would count votes for free, but it turns out our town's election budget includes paying us for our time spent- a pittance compared to the machines, especially when you get guaranteed cross-column 100% accuracy when you hand-count it. The major expense appears to be the printed paper ballots, but the opti-machines still require printing too...
