On National Voters Registration Day, the Board of Butler County Commissioners heard from Angie Frison of Election Systems & Software during a work session.
The commissioners are considering the purchase of new voting and tabulating machines.
According to Ms. Frison, the demand for paper ballots has increased in the wake of the probe into Russian meddling of 2016 election.
Voting will be a two-step process in the future with the tabulator(left) counting the ballots created by the and ballot machine (right).
As she demonstrated the machines, she explained their functions. The DS450 would aide in sorting ballots including mail-in ballots.
Further work sessions will be held to identify potential sources of funding.
