Potter County Purchases New Voting Machines

Voters in Potter County will be using new machines during the next Potter County election.

Potter County Commissioners voted to approve the purchase of the new machines during this week's meeting. The Hart InterCivic Verity Voting machines will replace the current machines being used for Potter County elections.

The machines have been approved by the United States Election Assistance Commission. The machines are also certified by "easy to use for both voter and election workers," according to the Texas Secretary of State's office.

When the machines were initially tested by the Texas Secretary of State's office, one anomaly was found as the machines rejected one completed ballot twice before accepting it on the third attempt.

The machines will cost Potter County $1 million.

A spokesperson for Potter County was unavailable for comment at the time of this article's writing.
