THE RECALL CAMPAIGN

Recall Q&a

September 13, 2003

Will touch-screen voting machines make it easier to locate my candidate on the recall ballot?

*

Probably not. Touch-screen machines allow voters to make their choices by touching a video monitor rather than using a paper ballot. The process is similar to using some types of automated teller machines. But even with these new devices, voters still will have to scroll through the full list of 135 randomly arranged names before making a ballot choice. No search function is available on the machines to help voters find their candidates more quickly.
