VINCENNES, IND. (AP) — Election officials in a southwestern Indiana county have nixed an idea to save money by not using voting machines during an upcoming primary vote.
Knox County Clerk David Shelton had said that going "old school" and using paper ballots would save money that would typically be spent to program voting machines as well as additional costs. The Vincennes Sun-Commercial reports the county's Election Board on Thursday passed on the idea.
