One of Virginia's electronic voting machines in 2014.

Last month, the Virginia Board of Elections determined the state’s electric voting system cited concerns about the security of touch-screen voting machines and moved to require that all machines in statewide elections produce paper receipts. The decision came after security flaws were identified in previous equipment. Kojo is joined by a local elections official and a voting expert to discuss the security benefits of the new system and what voters should expect on election day.
