After spending hundreds of millions of dollars on new voting machines, we found out the ballots will be hand recounted, not re-scanned. Our small county must find 20 Democrats and 20 Republicans, at least, to sit in a small, inside room to put ballots into piles for Biden or Trump then to hand count them — 45,000 ballots. Hand counting is absolutely absurd. I did this in Athens in 1972 and can assure you all, the counting was not accurate. Use the scanners.
