WABASH VALLEY, Ind. (WTHI) - Indiana is one of about a dozen states without a paper ballot backup for every machine...but that could all change soon.

Governor Eric Holcomb has included a $10 million request to improve election security as part of his budget proposal.

Most of that money would be used to install paper back-ups to digital voting machines.

A move being called crucial by advocates nationwide.

The goal is to have every touch screen upgraded by 2024.
