Officials don't expect Election Day to bring the kind of delays and mix-ups with electronic voting machines that made the May primary so difficult in some counties.

Following widespread complaints about the voting machines by county clerks and Secretary of State Betty Ireland, the Nebraska company that supplies the machines to West Virginia made a number of changes.

Now, county clerks say their questions are getting answered quickly, and that they're on schedule for the November 7 general election.

34 of the state's 55 counties will rely on the electronic machines in November.

Nineteen will use optic scan machines and the other two will stick with paper ballots.
