New Voting Machines Used in Today's Election

Today many voters are getting their first look at the voting machines the urban government spent $2 million purchasing. My polling place was well prepared to assist those of us who were unable to attend any of the training sessions the Fayette County Clerk's office conducted. Precinct workers were able to explain the operation of the machines quickly and unobtrusively. The machine was simple to operate and the ballot was easy to read. I guess we will have to wait until tonight to see if there are any problems with the vote, but so far it looks like all is well.

My thanks to Mr. Blevins and his office. Our Fayette County Clerk has done an excellent job of preparing for today's vote.

Since he is running in today's election, I wish him well. Win or lose, he has done a fine job of modernizing the clerk's office and conducting the many training sessions for the new machines. His efforts have helped us meet the federal mandate for upgrading Kentucky's election system.
