Although she still wants counties with touch-screen voting systems to switch to paper ballots this fall, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner said yesterday that other changes she proposed for the November election aren’t likely.
The multiple-precinct vote centers that she initially had recommended be created statewide by this fall could be adopted by counties voluntarily instead and phased in elsewhere later, she said.
She also won’t insist that ballots be counted only at a central location in each county. Instead, she suggested that they could be counted unofficially in each precinct and then run through central scanners for the official tally.”
