Why are counties buying ExpressVote XL?

“We’ve been looking at these machines for years. It was clear to all our people that the ES&S system would provide the safest, least disruptive voting experience, especially for senior citizens … There’s a good reason why all the other New Jersey counties who looked at this are buying the ES&S systems. For the same money, you get paper and a better machine overall.”
