It’s about the “recount” in the AG race


    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?

    There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
