Another Mississippi County Switching Back to Paper Ballots

LAFAYETTE COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — Lafayette County supervisors are seeking bids for new voting machines. The county has used touch screen machines since 2007 but the bids call for machines to electronically count paper ballots. Supervisors say if there’s ever a question about the outcome of elections, workers could retrieve paper ballots and count them by hand. 12 of Mississippi’s counties now use paper ballots including Hinds, Harrison, Madison and DeSoto counties, four of the six most populous counties in the state. Paper ballots could also help reduce lines at the polls, allowing workers to quickly set up additional voting stations.
