Touch screen voting practices for voters in Kanawha County
Kanawha County voters will notice a change at the polls this primary election in May. The county is switching to a touch screen format.
Voters will be handed a blank sheet of paper that paper will be inserted into the machine and once voting is complete, the ballot will print out results.
The machines are new to most voters in the county, but they have had plenty of testing.
"Last year we had small elections for St. Albans and for Dunbar. E-S and S worked with us on that so we could use their equipment. And the voters loved it. They had, we had no problems" said Kanawha County Clerk Vera McCormick.
Early voting will continue in six communities to give voters more options to cast their ballot.
Voting locations include Elk Community Center, Sissonville Library, Cross Lanes Sheriff's Office, Belle Town Hall and Marmet Town Hall.
Plus, you still have the option to cast a ballot at the Voter Registration Office.
Primary elections in West Virginia are scheduled for May 8, 2018.
