    Cherokee county.  The lines were very short and very white.  Diebold machines.  After finishing with the machine, I handed over the plastic card with my votes encoded electronically to the poll worker and asked if there was any way to get a print out of my completed ballot- she just laughed at me.  Left me feeling kind of creeped out.

    •  The vote is in the Diebold machine. (0+ / 0-)

      I was a poll watcher in Virginia in '06.  Votes are counted from the machine, not the card.

      A paper ballot would be helpful, but that is a fight to have on off years not at a poll worker who is probably tired, just doing his/her job.  There isn't a darn thing they can do about a paper trail now.
