We just heard that some delegates have been voting on two machines....

Don't know how that affects the vote, nor how many have been doing this. Most votes have been by show of hand, but instead of standing vote with pages - they have now on tight votes moved toward using the machines. I think that technology is necessary - but do wonder how much can be truly monitered without actually "seeing" a show of hands or standing. It's pretty hard to raise two hands for a vote- that kind of sticks out!

This happened in 2004 as well. The presiding bishop from Oklahoma told them to stop it, but never went back to review the votes where it was mentioned. I don't think it would have changed any outcomes, but it was frustrating.

That is just wrong to do something twice.
