Voting Machines

NY Democrats want to have one statewide voting machine. Republicans want to let the counties choose which kind they use. Lobbyists were also split on the decision. So what would happen if every county could choose its own type of voting machine?

"Using different machines from county to county "is what Florida was all about," said Barbara Bartoletti of the League of Women Voters. "

So we elect these people, they are given a directive to choose a voting machine that is best for New York and they punt and say let the counties choose because they have to please their lobbyists first, the people of New York second.

"Members of the panel insisted nothing was final. But Democrats who had urged their colleagues to zero in on one machine said the fight was nearly over. "

Let me go on record as saying this is pathetic and these people should be ashamed.
