DeKalb County residents still have several opportunities this month to get familiar with the state’s new voting machines.
The county is hosting a number of events to let the public try out the machines, which state officials are pushing to have in place for March’s presidential preference primary (which, in DeKalb, also includes a special election for sheriff). The new machines involve a combination of touchscreens, printed ballots and scanners.
Upcoming voting machine demonstrations are listed below, as provided by the DeKalb elections office.
Jan. 22: 6 to 8 p.m. at Shy Temple, 2030 Wesley Chapel Road, Decatur
