Trouble in TN: State to research cost of paper ballots

State to research cost of paper ballots

Associated Press - February 6, 2009

As much as $37 million in federal funding is available under the Help America Vote Act passed in the aftermath of Florida's disastrous 2000 election.

But lawmakers say some county election officials are concerned they will be stuck with costs that may exceed the federal funding.

If that's the case, House Republican Caucus Chairman Glen Casada of Franklin said Friday he plans to move forward with legislation that would repeal the act.
