A proposal calling for paper ballot elections this year is set to get its first hearing at the state capitol today.

Lawmakers pushed for paper–ballots following questions surrounding touch–screen voting machines.

But most of the state's electronic voting and counting machines are now certified for use.

It's unclear what could happen next.

Some county clerks are also worried about rolling out a new statewide voter registration database in a presidential election year expected to draw a record number of voters.

The database has never been used statewide.
