The paper trail test added to some voting machines proved popular:
The university’s (UGA) Survey Research Center interviewed 459 voters who used the machines. The results released by the Secretary of State’s Office on Monday showed that 96 percent found the paper audit trail easy to use, 88 percent said their overall voting experience was “good,” and 89 percent of voters were either “very” or “somewhat” confident in the accuracy and security of the voting machines.
Eighty-seven percent of voters said they had previously been confident in the machines, 82 percent said they favored a paper trail for Georgia’s voting system, and 99.8 percent said the paper trail accurately reflected their choices.
While people seemed to like the paper trail, there was only a 2% increase in the number of people confident in the accuracy and security of these machines. In other words, most people want a paper trail, but were already confident with the machines.
Oh yea, if my math is correct, 1 person still thought the machine got his vote wrong. 🙂
