Shortchanging NJ Voters - NYTimes Editorial

Here's a link to the January 2, 2009 NYT editorial on the problems New Jersey has with Sequoia machines -- maybe they should consider lever machines.

An except:
Editorial - Shortchanging Voters - "New Jersey’s main problem is that for technical reasons it is virtually impossible to hook up a reliable printer to the Sequoia voting machines used in most of the state’s voting precincts. One assemblywoman has called the printer attachment a “Rube Goldberg” contraption that could cause more problems than it solves. A public interest lawsuit to prohibit further use of the Sequoia machines on grounds they are easily tampered with is scheduled for trial this month."
Isn't this a budget cut we could all get behind?
