Missouri Secretary of State Announces Paper Trail Requirement

By Jo Mannies, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2/26/04

Missouri Secretary of State Matt Blunt became the fifth state election official in the nation to announce his support for a requirement that electronic voting systems produce a voter verified paper record of each digital ballot. "This requirement will enable voters to review their ballot before it is cast to ensure that it was marked as intended," Blunt said in a statement.

Secretary of State Blunt joins Washington, California, Nevada and New Hampshire secretaries of state in endorsing the voter verified paper trail requirement.
