Higher turnout in Morgantown, WV first VBM election

So reports the Columbus, IN Republic.

There is a nice report on how the municipality handled the transition here: http://www.wvpubcast.org/newsarticle.aspx?id=19760.  The change was clearly motivated by a desire to increase turnout in municipal contests.  It’s not clear how they do signature verification (the implication of this story is visual, checking against printed / signed voter registration cards).
