Federal complaint filed to force upgrading Indiana voting machines by 2020 elections

From the Indianapolis Star.

An Indiana nonprofit has filed a federal complaint against the Indiana Election Commission and Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson over the state’s lack of voting machines that produce a paper trail.

On Thursday, Indiana Vote by Mail and five Indiana residents filed the complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. Vote by Mail describes itself as a nonpartisan organization that is committed to passing legislation to make Indiana elections fair and accessible for all voters.

The 25-page complaint filed Thursday alleges that the state has exhibited a lack of urgency in eliminating the use of direct recording electronic, or DRE, voting machines. The complaint say DRE machines are susceptible to manipulation, and do not provide a voter-verified paper audit trail.

The complaint is calling for the decertification of DRE machines before the 2020 presidential election.”
