Yes. Following each election, election officials can print all cast vote records to paper should they chose to do so. At this time, however, the State of Texas does not require a voter verifiable paper trail that can be printed and viewed by the voter at the polling place. Should Texas lawmakers ever pass a law mandating such a requirement, Wise County, like all Texas jurisdictions, will comply. Our voting system will support this capacity should it be required.
Correctly Recorded Votes
Also know that election officials have always and will always ensure votes are recorded correctly, by testing the voting system programming and validating it before and after the election - in the presence of witnesses - to ensure that votes are counted and reported as they are cast, through a process known as logic and accuracy testing. There are many other security features - both in process and in equipment and software - built into the process.
