Panel: E-voting needs paper trail


Among the commission's recommendations:

  • Congress should pass a law requiring voter-verifiable paper audit trails on all electronic voting machines.

  • States should require voters to present photo IDs and offer free photo IDs to those who don't have drivers' licenses.

  • All "legitimate domestic and international election observers" should be granted unrestricted access to the election process, within the rules of the election.

  • News organizations should voluntarily refrain from projecting any presidential election results in any state until all polls have closed in all states but Alaska and Hawaii.

  • States should establish uniform procedures for the counting of provisional ballots, which voters can use when there are questions about their registration.
