Jan Murtha, Retired Registrar South Windsor, currently voting system Trainer.
She explained that the lever machines did not work reliably, that there were many problems and the registrars did not tell us - we did not know about this. (Recall the registrar mentioned earlier who told me problems should be fixed without worrying the public.). She said costs can be less with the optical scanner, a town (hers?) went from 7 to 5 districts, no longer pays a mechanic at $1000 per election, but that some cost for registrars went up because responsibilities and funds were transferred from the Town Clerk's office. She said the Secretary of the State's Office has done a "terrific" job of training. She was in favor of the double check of the machine, and recommended a recount by machine and the audit by hand.
