You’ll Vote With Your Finger in 2020

The Board of Supervisors has voted to replace our ink and paper voting system with new touch-screen technology

Enjoy marking your ballot in ink and handing it in for a sticker when you head to the polls next month, it may be one of the last times you’re able to do so. Los Angeles County officials have voted unanimously to replace our current voting system with touch-screen machines. Ideo in Palo Alto won a $15-million contract to design the new system, which is expected to reduce the number of errors voters make with the current process. It is reported the software should be created, certified by the California’s Secretary of State, and in place for all Los Angeles County voters by 2020.
