League Of Women Voters On U.S. Voting Machines

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
www.lwv.org

STATEMENT BY LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS OF THE U.S. ON VOTING MACHINES

"Today's Associated Press story entitled "League of Women Voters Drops Support of Paperless Voting Machines" is misleading.

The LWVUS has just concluded its 46th biennial national convention. The delegate body in attendance, representing 47 states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands, adopted a resolution that revises the LWVUS stance on voting machines.

The new resolution reads, "In order to ensure integrity and voter confidence in elections, the LWVUS supports the implementation of voting systems and procedures that are: secure, accurate, recountable, and accessible."

The League continues to support voting systems that are well-managed and meet the above four criteria, including electronic voting systems. Each voting system should be looked at on a case-by-case basis to ensure that it meets each of these four criteria and that the operational and management systems supporting it will be well-run."
