He sasys that he has other examples that he will show later.

Sequoia vote machine can't do simple arithmetic?

Comments Filter:
  • At first glance, that might seem odd, even very odd. However it is possible that a voter did not mark/make a vote for a particular race and thus the ballots to votes would not match.

    I'll have to look at the report to see if he took this into account.
