60. OR: Voting-machine results backed by recount test
hand recount of two precincts on Wednesday verified that voting tabulation machines worked correctly on Election Day.

Only minor discrepancies were discovered as Jackson County Elections Center officials reviewed ballots as required by House Bill 3270, which was enacted by lawmakers in 2007 to ensure that the results from voting machines are accurate.

"It does prove that the machines were counting correctly," said Jackson County Clerk Chris Walker.

The recount showed only a few votes difference, well within the one-half of one percent requirement in Oregon elections.
