Comments on Onondaga County Voting System Cost Comparison

On April 19, 2007, a study comparing the purchase and maintenance costs of paper ballot optical scan and DREs was released by Onondaga County's Comptroller. While well intentioned, the Onondaga study failed to fully account for ongoing maintenance costs, such as storage, maintenance, and software licensing fees; neither did it look at any of the large body of research and analysis about voting systems that is now available.

NYVV's analysis calls attention to omissions and misconceptions in the Onondaga County study, arguing that it reached the wrong conclusion.
