Governor Tom Wolf wants paper trail for Pa. votes

Governor Tom Wolf wants a paper trail for votes in Pennsylvania.

The governor has ordered counties that plan to replace their electronic voting machines to buy systems that include a paper-based backup.

Pennsylvania is one of a handful of states that uses machines that only store votes electronically.

That makes double-checking accuracy, or checking for tampering, more difficult.

Counties are not required to replace their machines. Wolf's order simply gave directions about what systems to switch to if needed.
