A U.S. state representative has thrown out hopes of ballots being trackable using facial recognition technology, speaking at a committee on Tuesday.

Denouncing the proposal, State representative, Stephen Meeks said that the technology for biometrics could not be deployed yet because it was not yet sophisticated enough to retain the records in a 3 million user database.

Stephen Meeks sponsored a law study which investigated whether biometrics could be leveraged in the voting system to maintain voter information and manage fraud.
