Why did the State select a Direct Recording Electronic voting system?

The DRE voting system was chosen because it is the most accurate and accessible voting system on the market today. With a DRE voting system, there are no questions of voter intent. A voter cannot vote for more than one candidate for an office, all voters - including blind and visually impaired voters - are able to vote a secret ballot, and the ballots can be easily translated into multiple languages to comply with federal minority language requirements. The technology used in DRE voting systems has been tested by independent testing authorities and by states across the country, and has a proven record of accuracy and security.
