JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. -- Johnson County residents will have a new machine at their fingertips when they vote in the August 2018 primary elections.
The county spent $10.5 million on 2,100 new machines. These machines will allow voters to view a paper copy of their ballot selections before they cast their votes.
The machine is simple to use, but the county wants to make sure that voters are comfortable and able to ask any questions about it before using it to cast their votes.
To help voters, the county is hosting teaching sessions, where voters will be able to cast mock ballots on the machines with the help of Johnson County election workers.
