Just curious, do most people prefer human tallied ballots? Is that even possible these days with so many ballots coming in?

I mean, I don't trust voting machines. Never have. But what's the alternative?

what is used in a lot of places- machine counted ballots that have a paper copy that's kept that can be hand counted or audited

^ exactly. the gold standard is hand-marked paper ballots combined with post-election risk-limiting audits. elections have been successfully carried out using paper ballots for a long time. the voting machine vendors are just trying to sell new products, which are not sufficiently secure.

^^ wake county has done a good job of leading on this issue.



and this isn't to say that there aren't many other threats to our election system ranging from gerrymandering, absentee ballot fraud, early voting access and of course disinformation campaigns, but this is an EASY one for our elected and appointed officials to get right

considering that most of us are semi-suspicious of our election system currently, the optics here are terrible. Public turns out and demands human readable ballots, NCSBE stubbornly agreed, they call another meeting in 48 hours presumably to overturn that decision, meanwhile the chairman resigns because of some fucked up sex joke he told.

SMH.

so after today's meeting, the board WILL continue with the meeting to consider the proposed amendment to the certification rules, which will take place Aug 23
