Did you ,know the whole state is doing optical scan ballots now?

I am so ticked off about this. I liked having my local clerk count the ballots. I know her and trust her. I don't trust machines.

2. my county uses optical scan but only on election day.

Early voting is by computer. So I don't vote early.

I always vote on Election Day unless I know I can't be here so I have the verifiable paper. The paper ballots can be manually counted if there is a need and you don't get hanging chads with ours.
