Voter Paper Trail

Secretary of State Trey Grayson says an advisory committee will delve into whether Kentucky should implement a paper trail to back up electronic voting machines.

Grayson says he is confident Kentucky’s voting machines are dependable. But election officials should do whatever is necessary to eliminate doubt about the accuracy of vote counts.

The committee will discuss information on the benefits of adding paper printers to election machines so voters can verify their selections.

Grayson says the group will meet after the general assembly adjourns in March.
