Machine failures are usually not binary: always vs. never. Failures
are often conditional. So unconditional trust in machines is not
warranted. There are countless stories about voting system error,
where the system works under certain conditions (in particular when
it was tested), but do not work under other conditions (the actual
operating condition when it failed).

Best regards,
Arthur
