Old-school voting machines

Reminiscences from Robert Holt Jr.  who has been working as a voting-machine technician in New York city for over 20 yeras, as quoted by the New York Times:

“To tell you the truth, I like these machines. With all the problems they’re having with the computerized machines, these are solid. You can’t tamper with them.” 

“The ones who lost canvass the machines and see how many votes they lost by, machine by machine. Sometimes they come in angry. They’re upset they lost, but there’s nothing they can do. A loss is a loss. These machines don’t lie. What you see is what you get.”

Here is to machines that don’t lie and more importantly are transparent in allowing that alleged honesty to be verified by everyone.
