7. STATE-BY-STATE PROGRESS ON VERIFIED VOTING

CALIFORNIA:

Governor Schwarzenegger yesterday signed into law SB1438, a
bipartisan bill (Johnson/Perata) to require an accessible
voter-verified paper audit trail for voting systems in
California. The bill passed through the legislature with
unanimous votes, thanks to the support of watchdog groups
and many individuals who called and wrote.

The bill also prohibits the Secretary of State from
certifying paperless e-voting systems after January 1, 2005,
and prohibits counties from purchasing such voting systems
after January 1, 2006. For background, see our alert at
