HB 641: Adding A Paper Trail To Electronic Voting Machines

Fox 5 had an interview with Representative Scot Turner (R-Holly Springs), who dropped HB 641 towards the end of this year’s session of the Georgia General Assembly, discussing the bill’s requirement to equip our direct-recording electronic (DRE) voting machines with a permanent record of an individual that can be audited, used for a recount, and verified by an voter of his or her ballot.

The bill has garnered bi-partisan support.  Representative Scott Holcomb (D-Atlanta) has spoken favorably towards the bill.  Updating our aging voting system isn’t going to be a cheap fix.  It will likely cost millions of dollars, but it will be an investment in the peace of mind of voters as well as opens up a dialog on what that upgrade will look like.
