48. From what I can tell they used AccuPoll
A confirmation from a DU'er here would be great. According to this story they used AccuPoll which create voter-verified paper trails. This would be the 2nd swing state with paper trails where the exit polls match the actual results. 2 for 2 results.

With all the DU'ers here, I cannot believe one of us is not from Ohio. Lets get some up to date info from the ground!

Ohio state officials have certified touch-screen voting machines from AccuPoll Inc. for use in the state. AccuPoll's machines create a voter-verified paper record.

Such paper records are at the heart of the debate over touch-screen machines, formally called Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) machines. Other vendors do not offer the feature unless election officials specifically request it. Critics of electronic voting say that fraud or errors in the machine's recording of votes could go undetected without an external record that could be used to audit results.

"This is a significant event because Ohio has been on the forefront of the debate," said Frank Wiebe, president of AccuPoll, in a statement. Ohio recently passed a law requiring the paper trail, he added.
