Davidson County Holding Demonstrations Of New Voting Machines
Davidson County is going to be using new voting equipment starting in August, but if you’re concerned about not understanding how to use the new technology, the election commission is here to help.
The Davidson County Election Commission is holding hands-on demonstrations to show how to use the new machines at libraries across Nashville in June.
“We are anxious to introduce our new state-of-the-art equipment to voters,” Davidson County Administrator of Elections Jeff Roberts said. “While the new ballot marking devices are very similar to our old voting machines, we want voters to have an opportunity to practice, so they will know what to expect in our next election.”
Roberts said to vote on the new machines, voters insert a blank ballot into a ballot marking devise and make their selections on a touch screen. Voters will then print their ballot and review their selections before inserting it in a secure scanner to cast votes.
The Davidson County Election Commission will be hosing demonstrations on the following days:
- Monday, June 3: Hermitage Library, 3700 James Kay Lane, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
