Our county doesn't use the touch screen machines. We use the ones where you complete the broken line with a black marker and then feed it into a machine when you are done. I don't recall ever having complaints about them in the 15 years I've lived here. Wonder why all of our counties in NC can't have the same machines?
We fill in the oval and feed them into the scanner.
In 08 there was a single touch screen machine there but so few people used it they never brought it back.
We use the same method here, works great and I never hear complaints. Don’t know why everyone doesn’t since these electronic machines are too easy to tamper with.
We have the connect the dot and one touch screen (for the disabled —the ones least likely to know the machine messed up) This is the last election for both. New system counts on one machine....printing out a ballot that can be kept as a record and check for the the disabled so everyone will have a paper trail.
Our election board is quite excited/happy about the change. We’ll be using them the first time for city election...to get the kinks out for the presidential election. We have a great tech team. Honest and well thought of gentlemen in our community.
