Re: NY is ahead behind ahead behind

I miss the old lever style voting machines. The "thunk" and physical action gave some satisfaction to doing your civic duty. Putting a ballot into a scanner just isn't the same.

I understand the mechanical voting machines were old and required lots of maintenance, plus lots of storage, transportation, etc costs.
