Chris Lawrence raises a legitimate point in regards to voting equipment which is that the differential in error rates may not justify the money needed to replace old machines, especially in poor counties which coiuld better use resources for education, law enforcement, and so forth.

    1. Chris Lawrence Says:

      I think what I actually said (or at least meant to say) was more like “nobody really knew about differential error rates, so replacing old/flawed machines wasn’t considered necessary” — after all, if it isn’t broken, why fix it?

      Having said that, if the choice is between school books and fancy OMR machines, I’m going to choose school books. HAVA, however, avoids that tradeoff, and I think it’s a good use of public money (besides, at the federal level, the tradeoffs are practically nonexistent ;-) .
