Assembly Bill A1115 (Paulin) / Senate Bill S309 (Myrie)The bill amends election law §7-202 to say that a voting machine or system approved by the state board of elections shall:

u.  be  constructed  so  that,  after  the paper ballot is cast by the
    15  voter, the voting machine or system never passes the cast ballot under a
    16  printer that can print votes onto the ballot, including as a  result  of
    17  unauthorized, malicious and/or faulty software and/or firmware. 

According to Smart Elections, "This bill will address one of security experts' primary concerns about “hybrid” voting machines, namely that the printer and the scanner share the same paper path. If we prevent this type of system from being certified, it will help preserve our current system of hand-marked paper ballots for most voters and ballot-marking devices that follow certain security provisions for voters with disabilities."
