Elections are costly. Elections are logistical nightmares. Elections don't have to be. Board of Elections Officials have stated they want new voting machines with a paper ballot, but even having these updates requires money to service and maintain machines, and requires significant staff time finding people to staff the polls during the days leading up to Election Day and on Election Day, especially. They have said for years that having paper, mail-in ballots would reduce costs and the possibility of poll worker error significantly.
