  •  The electronic machine (1+ / 0-)

    actully isn't a voting machine. It's an electronic assist for visually/motor-impaired voters to generate a ballot for the optical scanners. Electronic touch-screen, with large characters if necessary for visually-impaired, or audible electronically-generated voice cues for the totally blind, and a keypad for those who can't manage the touchscreen. There's still a paper trail after the ballot is fed into the scanner to be counted. They're new this year; another thing Minnesota seems to be doing right.

    We are men of action, lies do not become us.
