An electronic voter verification process in Minnesota needs more testing.

A Minnesota panel asked to test high tech alternatives to the paper sign-in process at polling places.

The Electronic Roster Task Force tested the voting system last year, but wants to do it again at more polling sites and in busier areas.

Advocates of electronic voter verification say it can guard against voter fraud, cut wait times and reduce mistakes made when data is entered manually.
