Albany - Dougherty County needs more voting machines to avoid the long lines on election day. Elections Supervisor Carolyn Hatcher is asking county commissioners to buy more electronic machines before the 2004 Presidential election.

Hatcher say the voting machines worked well on November 5th, but more are needed to speed up the voting process. "The machines cost about $3,000 each," said Hatcher. "The state supplied the initial voting machines, but the rest have to be bought by the county."

But, Hatcher says it shouldn't take as long to vote during the next election now that voters are familiar with the new machines.
