Houston County prepares for Election Day

By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- Election day is two weeks away and Houston County is making sure everything goes smoothly when you place your votes.

Over 40 machines are being checked to ensure they accept and record ballots correctly.

The machines used by the county don’t keep track of information.
They only tabulate the marks selected.

“Elections are so important in our democracy that having systems in place that ensure fair, honest elections are really important that we want to ensure that the voters of Houston County have confidence in their votes,” says Houston County Probate Judge Patrick Davenport.

Election Day is March 3rd. Polls will be open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.
