NH town bans hidden vote-counts, by computer or whatever else

From Nancy Tobi:

Lyndeborough passes warrant article prohibiting concealed vote counting by computers or any other method

Any citizen in New Hampshire can bring a petition article to their Town Warrant by securing the signatures of at least 25 registered voters. The article is then added to the Town Warrant to be voted on in Town meeting. Today, the citizens of Lyndeborough resoundingly approved enacting into the town’s laws the following warrant article regarding the counting of votes. I hope that NH citizens all around the state will enact the same law in their town at next year’s Town Meetings.

Here is the petition citizens signed to add the article below regarding the counting of votes to the Town Warrant:
