Circuit Court Clerk Renesa Abner says they want to ensure voting security.

“We’re inspecting the machines to make sure that the paperwork and also the printouts on the machine show the correct serial numbers – make sure the seal number is recorded and correct,” Abner said. “We’re making sure there are zero votes on the machines. It’s just an integrity check to make sure everything is the way it should be before the machines go out.”

Poll centers will be open on Election Day from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.
