Young people who voted in the recent midterms were more likely than those who did not vote to say that they felt confident abt democracy in the U.S., were hopeful things would get better & that the U.S. government would improve over the next few years:

- If the diff in the # of votes b/w the winning & the losing candidate is w/in 1%, the losing candidate can request a recount w/in 30 days of certification. If there is a tie, the candidates can agree to a coin toss or they can have a run-off election.

Side note: this is why election officials get cranky when you ask what they do in odd-numbered years when "nothing's going on."

In the Apr 2 Election, we received 34 Provisionals. 30 were accepted and the ballots inside were counted! Provisionals can allow registered St. Louis County Voters with no ID to cast a ballot if we are able to verify the voter’s identity through signature matching

Our goal is always to provide St. Louis County voters with options and to be as transparent as possible. Touchscreens and hand-marked paper ballots are both available to Stl Co Voters. We encourage voters with questions to come to a demo or check out our FB live streams.

We also never electronically transmit results. You can learn more about our chain of custody practices here: . Audibility is a key factor of any voting system and touch screens can actually both reduce voter error (e.g. over voting) & clarify voter intent.

Paper ballot scanners are also programmed using election management systems. Our tabulation room in St. Louis County is air-gapped meaning those computers are never connected to the internet and USB that has been used with an internet connected device would not be inserted

Hi Jennifer, thank you for sharing your thoughts. We want to take a moment to touch on a couple of points in your articles: There is no Auto-Cast Feature on the machines we are considering. The paper record is always printed BEFORE the votes are cast to allow for verification.
