Abstract:'s 12th Election Reform Briefing reveals that 25 states will require the use of paper trails in time for the 2008 presidential election, and of these 15 states currently plan to use them as the official record in a recount of votes. How or if they would be used in recounts- and how difficult that process might be- are questions many states still need to answer.
