All of Arizona gets new voting gear

By Jon Kamman, The Arizona Republic, 1/27/04

The entire state of Arizona will use paper-based, optical scan voting systems this year, choosing to replace punch card systems with paper based, rather than electronic ballot systems. According to the story, Deputy Secretary of State Kevin Tyne said the state "bought 467 voting machines, together with training services and a maintenance contract, for more than $2.5 million", and that "Secretary of State Jan Brewer was "more cautious and conservative" in buying optical-scan equipment, rather than a touch-screen voting system that has drawn concerns about possible tampering."
