Warren County Voting Machines Aids Higher Turnout
The new voting machines in Warren County helped bring more people into the polls and also created longer wait times for some voters. As long as voters were in line by the voting deadline, they were allowed to vote. The higher turnout is a positive for the elections board.
"We're very surprised by the turnout but we're very happy about the turnout because people are exercising their right to vote," board vice chairman Ed Burris said.
Some voters were pleased with the change to the new machines.
"I have been voting 15 years and this year has been the easiest one," Jodi Papalia, a Warren County voter, said.
Several key races were up for grabs in Warren County including seats on the commissioners, city council, and school board.
