Optical Scanners! Horay!
Those of us who hail from the Empire State have reason to sing I love New York, and its not because of our senator who's taken 1/3 of her time at work off to go campaign, it because our state just approved optical scanners over the touch screen voting machines. While the optical scanners aren't perfect they're a whole lot better than the touch screens. This fight is not over yet, the makers of the DRE's are appealing and theres still another round before the general election but by then we will already have a whole pile of optical scanners and I doubt they would be stupid enough to switch at that point. So while the war for verified voting is not over, we have won a decisive victory.
