States Prepare for Tests of Voting System Changes

States Prepare for Tests of Voting System Changes: "After California ordered a switch to paper ballots from touch-screen voting machines for Tuesday's primary, election officials in the sprawling, 7,200-square-mile Riverside County had to decide the best way to pick up the ballots so they could be centrally counted on time: helicopter or truck?

They chose land rather than air, because the last time the helicopter had been grounded by fog. But then they encountered another problem: 60,000 absentee ballots had begun to fall apart at the fold lines.

'They may be high-tech or they could be low-tech, but the problems are always there,' said Barbara Dunmore, the county registrar of voters."
