A second West Virginia county will still be using paper ballots and hand counting.

Braxton County initially chose to use the optical scan voting system but later changed their mind.

By sticking with its paper ballots, Braxton and Wyoming counties forfeit all federal money they could have used to change voting systems.

Of the eight other West Virginia counties that now use paper ballots, four will switch to optical scan voting systems and four to electronic touch screen systems.
