    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?
