6. Do they allow you to ask for a paper ballot?
What worries me is our next election here in WV. The last time we were given the option of touch screen or paper ballot but were told this time around it's going to be touch-screen only. Having served as a poll worker I know just how fucked up those machines can be and how the least amount of tampering can screw up thousands of votes. I want a paper ballot and a paper trail.
