California E-Voting Paper Trail Now Law... But Won't Matter Until 2006

from the so-go-on-voting dept

While California (along with Nevada, mostly) has been leading the way for states to require paper trails on e-voting machines, the state has now made it a law -- but it won't take effect until 2006. However, hopefully the other security procedures the state has required for existing e-voting machines for this upcoming election will minimize the risk of election day problems.
