Recounting DRE (Touchscreen) Ballots

Posted in

QUESTION:   Are all ballots recorded on the DRE required to separate individual voter records by cutting the paper record?

ANSWER:    Although the recommended procedure is to separate individual voter records by cutting the paper record, in response to the concerns received at the teleconference by many of the county clerks, the G.A.B. has determined the Boards of Canvassers may retain the voter verified paper record in its original format.  Canvass Board Members shall take all appropriate precautions to ensure confidentiality of individual electors’ votes.  This includes limiting access to the poll list at the time reconciliation of the ballots is completed to prevent determination of individual votes.
