Queens Officials Show Off New Voting Machines

NY 1

September 3, 2010 

Voters will soon be casting their ballots using a brand new system.

Local leaders and officials from the city's Board of Elections demonstrated the new electronic voting system in Jackson Heights, Queens on Friday. 

The old lever voting booths will be a thing of the past, and the new system is designed to be in compliance with the Help America Vote Act of 2002.

From now on, with every vote cast, a verifiable paper record will be produced.

Officials say it will be easier and more accurate than the old booths. 



Hands-On Demo of New Optical Scan Voting Machines

Starting this fall, all lever voting machines in NY state will be replaced with electronic optical scan voting machines.  Join Senator Peralta for a hands-on demonstration with the Board of Elections.  All participants will have the opportunity to try out the new voting machines.

If you cannot attend this event, the Board of Elections is holding other demos across NYC.  Find another demo by clicking here
