Albany -- Just a few weeks shy of election day, some states are busy fixing glitches in their electronic voting machines... the same machines used here in Georgia.

The manufacturer Diebold Election Systems, Incorporated makes the voting machines.

Officials in Maryland had to fix problems during primary elections with their electronic voting check-in machines made by Diebold. Problems with Maryland's machines are now fixed.

Dougherty County voting and elections officials say they've had no such problems with the devices here.

"We've never had anything happen other than perhaps a machine, the battery ran down, we had to recharge it or something like that. We've not had any problem with the actual count," said elections supervisor Carolyn Hatcher.

Dougherty County voters who need to vote absentee should go ahead and do that now. Advanced voting runs from October 30th through November 3rd at the Civic Center.
