ABSTRACT
This article reports that 21 states in the U.S. have passed laws requiring voter-verified paper ballots. Such legislation has passed but awaits governor's action in three additional states. Paperless electronic voting machines were widely adopted by states and counties as a solution to problems in the 2000 presidential election. However, the machines caused a number of problems in 2002 and 2004, including in Florida, where 35 percent of precincts lost votes or tallied more votes than voters.
