Whiskey or Brandy is too important to settle in a slapdash manner. A scientific analysis must be carefully examined with guaranteed repeatable results being paramount.

That first article about costs of voting is a crock.

First, it is from the NY Times.

Second, when Georgia changed their voting laws (back about 2018), it became easier to vote in Georgia than Colorado and I believe Delaware, plus the election that year had the highest participation to date.
