Georgia’s appointed Secretary of State, Republican Brian Kemp, says that electronic voting machines are trustworthy and that his office resisting any move to allow for a "paper trail" for voters who don’t trust the electronic machines. 

The former state senator who was appointed to the position by Governor Perdue after Karen Handle resigned to run for Governor, was in Rome yesterday and told reporters that a change to Georgia’s electronic voting machines could cost upwards of $30 Million.

Kemp said that only a small portion of Georgia’s electorate distrusts the electronic machines and that there are already systems in place for them to use a paper ballot if they choose.
