Secretary of State looking at purchasing new voting machines
Posted on 12/6/2017 3:00:00 AM.

Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler says they are looking at replacing voting machines. Schedler says tampering with the current machines is remote, but a new system would further decrease chances of tampering. He is awaiting approval from the state Division of Administration. If approved, the new touch screen system would provide better confirmation for voters.

"It would produce after you vote on the screen, an actual paper ballot that would show you exactly how you voted," Schedler said.
