Albany -- A Democratic candidate for Georgia Secretary of State says the only way for Georgian's to know their vote counts, is to have a paper trail with each electronic voting machine.

Scott Holcomb campaigned with the lunch crowd at Carter's Grill in downtown Albany this afternoon.

The 34-year-old Atlanta attorney is making his first run for political office. An Air Force veteran, Holcomb says Georgians can't be confident of election results with current electronic voting machines.

"As I travel the state, I hear throughout many concerns about whether or not the machines are as accurate as we want them to be. And so I fully support the paper ballot trail," Holcomb said, on his campaign swing across South Georgia.

There are six Democratic candidates for the secretary of state nomination, with four Republicans seeking their party's bid for the office.

Cathy Cox, the current secretary of state, is seeking the Democratic Party nomination for governor.
