What the hell is this red lever?

If you voted in NY, you probably had to use the booth above. It's like I was transported back to 1901. I like throw-back stuff (this blog is an indication of that) but voting seems too important and these rickety old things are on their last leg. What happened to the future? We use ATMs everyday, I don't think it's a stretch to vote using a similar machine. Too expensive? Ipods are like $12. Paper trail? ATMs print receipts... most times. Our country is about to take a big leap forward. So should the machines that get us there.
