66e3e840177490.txt http://tinyurl.com/2vgnvwa By Virginia Martin, Democratic Commissioner of Elections. I and my counterpart, (Republican) Commissioner Nastke, believe that the only way we can be confident that we'll know how the voters voted -- which we must know before we can certify the results -- is by counting every single vote on every single paper ballot that was scanned. Therefore, while what the scanner might show the voter on its screen might be interesting, no voter should be reassured by what that screen reveals, because it could be wrong.

http://www.free-times.com/index.php?cat=1992912064227409&ShowArticle_ID=12240510102824271 After Buell had finished his presentation -- during which he'd called the voting machines "buggy," "unstable," "exploitable" and "not professional quality stuff," among other things -- he told the commission that he'd wondered why the kind of knowledge he'd just dropped on them hadn't ever been presented before.
