“Though Democrats and Republicans disagree about many things in an election year, members in both parties and in nearly all states support having a paper record of some kind to ensure that election results are accurate,” says Tom Howard, vice president of government relations for Domtar. In 2018, Congress approved $380 million to assist states in improving the security of federal elections. Legislators gave states flexibility in spending but sent clear signals about the importance of having a voter-verified paper record of every vote. Those paper records would be valuable in case a post-election audit is needed to ensure that voting machines produced accurate results.
