From an article on NJ Spotlight Daily News by Colleen O’Dea:
Some “machines include a paper ballot alongside an electronic screen which both allows voters to check that their choices were properly marked and keeps a paper trail for the elections board. Fewer people casting ballots should help reduce the wait some may experience as voters who may be confused by the new technology take more time on the machine.”
“But it’s unclear how quickly New Jersey may move to join the vast majority of states that require all voting machines to have a voter-verified paper trail. The state is using only a portion of a $10 million federal grant to fund the small-scale pilots in Union, Gloucester and Essex counties. And several bills that would push New Jersey closer to what outside groups consider the safest voting machines continue to flounder in the Legislature.”
