Fulton elections to hold Northside demo on new voting machines

Even if you know who you’ll vote for, do you know how?

Fulton County is the most-populated county in Georgia, which is currently undergoing the largest rollout of elections equipment in U.S. history.

That’s why Richard Barron, Fulton’s director of registration and elections, and his staff will be in Sandy Springs on Thursday, Jan. 30, to hold a demonstration on the equipment.

Fulton officials just got the new system this week.

The 18-year-old electronic machines in Fulton (which lacked a paper ballot) are being replaced with a patchwork of touchscreens, printed ballots and scanners.

The demo will be at a panel discussion of elections security issues hosted by 90.1/WABE-FM from 6 to 8 p.m.

The event will take place at the Dorothy C. Benson Multipurpose Complex, 6500 Vernon Woods Drive NE. Overflow parking will be available at nearby Sandy Springs Masonic Lodge, 6700 Vernon Woods Drive NE.
