Comments on HJR 66

Sue Gibson wrote 10 months ago

I have participated in the hand-counting of paper ballots for a single precinct. It took half a day with six people counting. It is significantly slower and more error prone than machine counting, and would increase costs and delay results reporting. Humans, unlike tabulation machines, are “notoriously poor at completing rote, repetitive tasks.” Few jurisdictions with more than 1,000 voters currently count votes by hand. Missouri already requires that only citizens vote. This resolution is designed to fool voters.
