Voting Machine Demonstration

On Thursday, January 11th, The New York City Board of Elections had a demonstration of electronic voting machines. I went and took some pictures.

ESTABLISHING SHOT
Citizens inaction.

MUCKETY MUCK
This guy is the Lord High Muckety Muck of NYC elections

DESI
DESI, DESI, give me your answer dooooo...

STICKING IT TO THE MAN
A New Yorker sticking it to The Man. That's The Man, on the right.


The true face of evil. I somehow thought the Diebold guys would look... eviller.

sequoia
Sequoia voting machine. Yes, it leaves a paper trail.

paper
Avante voting machine. Complete with paper trail! Me like!


Lessons learned:

All of these allegedly scary voting machines leave a nice paper trail.

The NYC Board of Elections has a hot babe working for them WHO WOULD NOT LET ME TAKE HER PICTURE.

It's pronounced DEEbold, not DYEbold.

No matter how much fuss people kick up about voter fraud, only about a hundred senior citizens will show up if you give the citizens a chance to pick a machine.

I need a new camera.

The hot babe is actually in the background of the Q&A time picture.

Your evil machines are better than our (Tennessee) evil machines. No paper trail here.

However since you do not have Corrente on your blogroll I am boycotting your site in a fit of pique.

Just to make things easy we would fit equally well under "Eschatonians" (we were the first-season spinoff fer chrissakes! not to mention ChiDy is all ours[gloat gloat gloat]) or under "Liberal Elites." Because, well, we are.

Your choice. Thanking you in advance &c. :)
