Charlottesville Residents Invited to Test New Voting Machines

Oct. 29, 2013

The City of Charlottesville is holding a mock election to help test out one of the latest paper-based voting machines, since their electronic machines are now outlawed.

"The law now says, we can't purchase anymore, we can't fix what we have, we can't modify, we can't do anything," says Charlottesville General Registrar Sheri Achetta. "So, everybody is in the same boat that we are to look and see what's out there to replace what we currently have.

The new voting machines will not be used next Tuesday, because they are still in the developing stages. However, they could be used next year.

The public is welcomed to test out the new machines at the Registrar's Office, located in the City Hall Annex, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:40 p.m. on Wednesday. They will also be on display at the Recreation Precinct on Election Day, November 5th.
