BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Due to an explosion of split precincts in the wake of the redrawing of election districts, the state is preparing to use paper ballots on an emergency basis in the upcoming fall elections in which the presidential race is the top contest.
The Advocate reports that the split precincts have resulted in 400 one-machine locations and state Elections Commissioner Angie Rogers says the paper ballot would be in play if the locations' sole machine quits functioning.
"This is a way to keep voting going until we can get the machine back up and running or another one delivered. It's a temporary voting method so voting is not interrupted," said Rogers.
North Louisiana parishes have the most one-machine precincts. Lincoln Parish has the most with 64 one-machine precincts.
