Groups Seek Ban on Voting Machines With Built-In Printers and Scanners
Advocates and lawmakers in New York state are calling for a ban on voting machines that use both a ballot scanner and a built-in printer, arguing that the devices are both insecure and expensive.
“Lawmakers must act quickly and pass legislation that bans One-in-All voting machines for good,” Susan Lerner, executive director of Common Cause NY, said in a statement on Friday.
Such machines, Lerner added, “are wasteful, insecure, and deeply flawed machines,” according to a news release from the organization. “Our current system is already the current gold standard: voter-marked paper ballots and optical scanners. Any one-in-all voting machine would be a serious—and expensive—needless step backwards. Protect the voters and secure the right to vote.”
