Electronically Count Manually Checked Votes?

So they are paying for an electronic vote counting system to count votes 'er' checked by hand because why? The people checking the votes can't count or they can't but if they can't how can they check.

They paid millions for this, why? Computers, a spreadsheet and a computer network already there sitting idle, they could have even done it with pen and paper and an abacus.

Did someone spend 6 million just to spend 6 million and because nothing was in place, they pretended to do stuff really cheap as a show and it all fell apart.
