Say goodbye to those old voting machines...A ban on old lever voting machines will have voters all over Connecticut casting their ballots by scanner.
Connecticut State Secretary, Susan Bysiewicz and Attorney General, Richard Blumenthal held a news conference this afternoon to announce plans to ban the old lever voting machines in all future elections.
Connecticut is switching its voting technology to optical scanner machines. This year's municipal elections will mark the first time that the technology will be used statewide. Officials say that voting by optical scanner leaves a reliable paper trail.
As everyone is well aware, any post on the reliability of the new voting machines sparks an interesting debate among the MLN community and this topic will certainly come up during the Secretary of State's guest post later this week.
Sec. of State Bysiewicz will be our guest on My Left Nutmeg tomorrow and I'll post the transcript of the conversation here on HatCityBLOG.
If you have any questions for Sec. of State Bysiewicz, I encourage you to sign up at My Left Nutmeg or read the transcript tomorrow evening.
