A sample ballot used in the Takoma Park election.
Voters in Takoma Park, Maryland used a voting system that made its debut in a municipal election nationwide.
The Scantegrity system was created by a group of universities, including George Washington and University of Maryland Baltimore County. A voter uses a paper ballot marked with invisible ink, which is exposed with a special marker. That marker reveals a code, which the voter can then use to check online whether their vote was tabulated correctly.
