Louisiana will use paper ballots to move to elections under legislation that was finally approved about 90 minutes before Congress was postponed.
Senator Bill 221 by Senator Sharon Hewitt had been negotiated in a closed room for about two weeks. The result merged many of the languages from two similar housepath bills.
Current law requires voting on machines in Louisiana. Legislation requires a paper ballot to be scanned to count.
A committee established by SB221 reviews and recommends the types of voting systems and vendors selected. The Secretary of State still makes the final decision.
The Senate approved the bill at 4:25 and passed the House of Representatives 22 minutes later.
