Re: How LEGAL are DRE's in a hand recount?

What Snohomish county is describing is a "paper regurgitation" of the
central vote tabulator records. That's not "recounting" anything,
that's a giant excercise in computer aided electoral masturbation.

California law says you have to do a manual recount of 1% of the ballot
in ALL cases and broader hand recounts under specific conditions. What
Snohomish is doing is rank idiocy and plausibly does NOT meet the
standard in question.
