I'm concerned about the rank choice being tallied at the municipal level. Our voting tabulators will not handle that at this time
Stephen Klayman
58:04
Why would you care what my second choice is?
Trudy Reid
58:42
Can you name the machines that can handle at this time?
Trudy Reid
59:06
There are only 2
CTYK

Do you know which machines are used in Maine?
Trudy Reid
01:00:09
But at the municipality level or would that go to the State
Trudy Reid
01:00:42
So ballots would have to be transported to the State?

margaret cooper

How do we gather the new signatures? via hardcopy? electronic means?
Susan Baron

I think some people will want details on the make of ballots machines out in 356 towns and cities , what number will need to be replace? I think more of the mechanics of how to implement this will work.
Susan Baron
01:07:15
Also I know we have some federal funding is coming for voting due to COVID-19 (absentee ballots) Is this the same monies?
Trudy Reid
01:08:05
how would this work in paper ballot communities
Trudy Reid
01:08:42
some communities do not have the machines
