CVF's Position on the Voter Verified Paper Trail

It is the position of the California Voter Foundation that any voting system that does not require a voter to directly mark on the ballot must still create a verifiable audit trail of each ballot cast that can be viewed by the voter at the time the ballot is cast; given today's technology the only practical voter-verifiable audit trail is a paper ballot image.

For more information about CVF's involvement in the voting technology debate and how the organization arrived at its position on a voter verified paper trail, please see the voting technology background page.
