Florida: Sarasota county to decide on electronic voting machines

The Ledger reports: Voters in this Southwest Florida county [Sarasota] will be able to decide in November whether to continue using computerized voting booths or go back to paper ballots, a circuit judge ruled.

Bennett Jr. ruled Wednesday that the initiative was legal. -- Voters Will Choose Voting Technology | theledger.com
