Indiana Election Upgrade Leaves Widespread Paperless Voting

Indiana officials are launching an election system upgrade adding devices to perhaps 2,000 electronic voting machines around the state that will display a paper record to voters.

The Indiana upgrade will still leave an unknown number of paperless machines and comes as security experts have urged for adoption across the country of paper-based voting systems, saying they are less vulnerable to manipulation and election workers can use those records to audit results.

Indiana will be among only eight states that could still be using some paperless balloting for the 2020 elections, according to a study released last month by the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law. The others are KansasKentuckyLouisianaNew JerseyMississippiTexas and Tennessee.
