21. OH: Voting system will be panned
Rich-land County Deputy Elections Director Jeff Wilkinson will defend the performance record of the county's voting system.

And he will criticize as overly expensive rules that require Richland County to keep a sizeable number of paper ballots, and a system meant to accommodate what he said is a small number of voters who prefer a paper system.

Jeff Wilkinson is one of two county elections officials invited to speak at the Ohio Elections Summit on Dec. 2.

He told the Richland County Board of Elections this week he and a Cuyahoga County elections official are the only local officials who will speak about experience overseeing elections where both systems were offered to voters.

Wilkinson told the board he has a major concern with the long-term costs of maintaining two systems.
