Gwinnett county elections officials will demonstrate the state’s new voting machines at 10 a.m. Feb. 1 at Pinckneyville Community Center, 4650 Peachtree Industrial Blvd. in Berkeley Lake.

Each of Georgia’s electronic voting machines are being replaced in time for the March 24 presidential primary.

Voters using the new system will present their driver’s license or other identification card for scanning, then proceed to a touchscreen voting machine. Once completing their election choices, the new equipment will print out a paper ballot for review. Once reviewed by the voter, the paper ballot is then scanned for tabulation.
