Check out this article on the Brad Blog:
He claims that most of Virginia uses touch-screen voting machines that do not leave a paper trail. is this correct?
I’m an election officer at a precinct in Northumberland County. We have a touch-screen machine at each precinct but they essentially are not used. In my five years as election officer, I’ve seen ONE vote cast on the tough-screen machine.
We use paper ballots counted by an optical scanner.
In case of a recount, we can go back to the big stack of paper ballots and count ’em out, one at a time.
Is the rest of the state voting on touch-screens? Are we the only people using paper ballots?
