Voters can preview Los Alamos County’s new voting machines at the county fair Saturday. Young and old alike are invited to vote for their favorite ice cream, search engine and season of the year on an “ice cream ballot” and feed them to the voting machine.
The clerk’s office will post “election results” on their website.
“We’re trying to showcase the machine, get people comfortable with using it,” County Clerk Sharon Stover said. “When we’re at the fair, we really would like anyone to come up and use the machines, even young people.”
In place of the generic test ballot, Stover and her staff considered using a sample ballot based on questions that could provide useful input for the county, but the time and money involved were prohibitive.
Secretary of State Dianna Duran lobbied for new voting machines to address several problems with the M100s currently in use.
In 2013, the legislature allocated $6 million in general funds and $1 million from the information technology fund to purchase new machines for the largest counties: Bernalillo, Doña Ana, San Juan, Sandoval and Valencia.
