"All races should be audited - whether they are close or not - but elections like this underscore the need to have processes in place to instill confidence in the results… While there is no indication that there is any need to question the results of yesterday's election, a 'recount' of a paperless voting machine will not catch software bugs, election programming errors or vote rigging malware in the voting machines."

Marian Schneider, president of Verified Voting on the Pennsylvania special election race
