Supreme Court Hands Vote Suppressors Another Tool

Editor’s Note: Following the publication of this article, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold the voter removal process described below. The decision deals a blow to election integrity not just in Ohio but throughout the country.

Ohio Goes to Court Over Ballot Image Preservation

Electronic voting hasn’t guaranteed fairness in elections so far. But digital-scanning technology has the potential to increase transparency in elections — if election officials flip the right switches.

Digital scanners capture images of each paper ballot cast and use the images to count results. The machines can preserve the images, providing a quick and easy way to verify election results.
