Montgomery County has a new voter-marked paper ballot system with a
verifiable paper trail.
The new system replaced the electronic push-button voting machines the
County purchased in 1996 which were nearing the end of their useful life. The old machines also did not meet the state mandate for counties to have a voting system with a verifiable paper trail in place for the 2020 Presidential
With the new system, most voters will use a pen to fill out a ballot and
have an opportunity to check it for accuracy before submitting it to a scanner that tabulates the votes and keeps the ballot in a secure container for audits or recounts.
