Touch Screen Voting Machines

Smith County voters saw the new Ivotronic voting machines for the first time Tuesday. The touch screen machines cost the federal government 1.36 million dollars for the Smith County machines alone.

Poll workers got voters up to speed on the machines when they arrived. After that, voters say it was easier than they expected.

Marolyn Braddick said, "No problems. I don't see how anybody could mess up."

Linda Jordan told us,"After he showed me what I was doing, I didn't have any problem."

Gail Lundberg said,"It couldn't have been easier. I'm impressed."

The Ivotronic machine is supposed to be more reliable. It's never lost a vote. Another benefit is that it generates faster returns on election night.
