Security experts warn old touch-screen voting machines in Kansas lack a paper record, which could allow Russians or other hackers to rig U.S. elections without detection.

reports counties in Texas have doled out millions of dollars in recent months to replace their old touch-screen voting machines, made by Hart Intercivic.

Cyber experts have warned since 2006 that hackers can plant vote-altering malware in electronic machines. Some now say cyber attacks could occur at the plants where the machines are made.

About one-fourth of Kansas' 105 counties still use paperless touch screen machines.
