INDIANAPOLIS (WFFT) - The Indiana Election Commission approved a voter verifiable paper audit trail for electronic voting systems.

This allows voters to verify their vote was recorded correctly.

There is already a paper trail in the back of the machine, the upgrades will add a system to the front of a machine.

The Indiana General Assembly funded the upgrades for about 10 percent of the voting machines in each county.

Allen County elections director Beth Dlug told FOX 55 she is waiting to clarify how to deploy the upgraded machines.
