During the week of  January 16, 2006, several vendors of electronic voting systems/equipment provided information to an audience of Fayette County judges of election, poll workers, and public citizens.  The following gives an overview of those vendors which demonstrated equipment.  All vendors were asked about capability to add-on a Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail should the Pennsylvania legislators heed the public demand for such.  All responded they have the capability to easily insert the feature to a compartment of the existing unit which will produce a "paper" record for the voter to review.  Diebold showed a pictorial representation of the unit in its supplemental brochure.  The paper record would remain behind a clear screen, and can be easily compared to the screen view, and would not be handled by the voter, or others.
