Tennessee and 15 other states that aren't requiring voter-verifiable paper ballots are at "high risk" of compromised elections, according to a report released Thursday.

The list also includes the District of Columbia.

The report issued by Common Cause, a nonpartisan, nonprofit group, concluded that accurate election results require voters to be able to confirm their votes on a paper record and a "statistically meaningful and transparent audit process."
