New Mexico has enacted a new voting law that requires all counties in the state to use a single, uniform balloting system. You might think it involves buying a lot of the new electronic touch panel voting machines.
Instead, the entire state will use.....paper.
Voters will mark their choices on a paper ballot that will then be fed into an electronic vote counting machine. In the event of discrepancies or disputes, the paper ballots can be easily counted and verified.
Good for New Mexico. There is just too much risk with the all electronic machines that have been shown to have problems with trivial spoofing of vote tallies and other bugs in the systems.
