Susan Bysiewicz, JD Biography

Title:
Lieutenant Governor of Connecticut
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
Reasoning:

“Ensuring voter confidence and the safety of our election process has always been my top priority. As we move to meet the federal requirement of one electronic voting machine for every polling place, the inclusion of a Voter Verified Paper Receipt on these machines is critical for ensuring that all votes are correctly cast and accurately counted. That is precisely why we are requiring all vendors vying for the contract to supply our electronic voting machines to show that they can adapt their machines to include a Voter Verified Paper Receipt should the legislature pass and the Governor sign into law legislation requiring it.”
