Voting equipment set for election

County clerk Lori Martin and her staff will have the opportunity to see the new voting equipment in action next month when the City of Clare has its election.
After this, elections in May 2018 would be the next time the equipment would be used.

“We don’t have anything filed yet for May but that would be the earliest if something is filed,” Martin said. “If no one files for May, we would definitely have one in August (for the primary).”

All county and township officials have been trained on the new equipment.

Voters in Clare will see new wrinkles with the new equipment.

“The voting equipment will have clearer messages,” Martin said. “It will tell them exactly what’s wrong with the ballot. That’s kind of neat. The equipment is more user friendly for the election workers. It’s easier to set up, easier to tear down and easier to program.”
