Ala. Clerks Endorse Electronic Voting For Military
(2008-08-25)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Alabama Circuit Clerks Association wants the Legislature to approve a secure electronic voting system for military personnel and other Alabamians who are overseas.

The clerks handle absentee ballots, and members of their association unanimously endorsed the plan at a recent conference.

Cullman County Circuit Clerk Robert Bates says he mailed 153 ballots to the military and other Alabamians overseas during the 2004 general election, but 66 were never returned for unknown reasons. Bates says counties statewide experienced a similar drop-off in returned ballots, and that's why a better, more efficient system of voting is needed.
