Facts about Ballot Printing Costs

One of the frequently expressed concerns cited by New York State election commissioners about paper ballot and scanner systems is the cost of printing paper ballots. NYVV has now updated its research into New York State ballot costs and demonstrates that high prices are not necessary. Our report discusses the legal and technical requirements for ballots and presents price quotes for New York State ballots as low as 14 cents per ballot.

The NYVV report also explores an alternative to purchasing printed ballots: in-house, county or regional printers that print scannable ballots. In-house printing could lower ballot costs to pennies per ballot, and put control of printing ballots in the hands of local election boards.
