Question re. Op Scan error rates vs. Punch Card error rates

Thank you very much to those who gave me the answers I needed re.
Diebold's redundancy.

I also need help with this:

Utah's Lt. Governor also claims that

"The average optical scan system error rate was 5.69%, far worse than
the average punchcard error rate of 3.83%"

Can anyone please help me rebut that?


It is difficult to keep up with all the stuff happening in Utah and try
to work to get the National Election Data Archive off the ground too. I
still have more to report from the NASED conference too when I get a chance.

FYI, I will post all the UT Lt. Governor's statements and my responses
at by tomorrow some time.
