Poll workers trying out new voting machines

September 25, 2002

Albany--Poll workers in Dougherty County are getting their first try at the new touch screen voting machines. Poll managers are training today and tomorrow on the new machines. Diebold, the company that built the touch screen's, are teaching workers in small classes how to work the machines. Poll workers say there is no reason to be intimidated by voting on a computer.

Poll Manager Eddie Mae Hand says, "The machines are easy to handle in fact its better than what we used for ballots because you can read the names on the screen and change the vote if you want too."

Next month, the poll managers will begin training the rest of the poll workers on the touch screens.
