Denton County Commissioners have voted in favor of switching from an electronic voting system to a paper voting system, according to the Denton Record Chronicle.
The Record Chronicle reports that Commissioners voted in favor of purchasing $9 million worth of equipment that produces and scans paper ballots only. The newly purchased voting system will print full size paper ballots at every voting location as voters need them.
County officials made the move following several recounts during the November 2016 election. The chairs of both the Denton Democratic Party and the Denton Republican Party supported the County's decision to change the voting system to new technology.
County officials hope to have the new voting system in place by November.
