Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Officials in Belmont Co Ohio tested the use of paper ballots and optical-scan at one precinct. The test was an attempt to see if elections could be held with less expense using paper ballots than using the county's DREs. The test was a success so the county is now thinking about spreading the experiment to the whole county. One result of the test was that there were no lines because many voters can mark paper ballots all at the same time. Hopefully Belmont will tell their neighboring counties and they will experiment and tell their neighbors and we will suddenly have a paper ballot movement that will spread across the whole country and more and more counties will join in the "Rage against the Machines"....
