New voting machines are on the way to Lauderdale County and were available for a demonstration Thursday at Meridian's Bonita Lakes Mall.
The touch-screen voting machines are part of a statewide upgrade of voting technology.
The machines are designed to be more user-friendly than paper ballots and come with modifications for those who are visually impaired or who have poor reading skills.
One hundred seventy six state-funded machines have been ordered for the Democratic primary in June. Twenty four additional machines have been ordered by Lauderdale County.
"Everyone's apprehensive when they have something new, but I think once we get started and they vote on them a couple of times, I think they'll love them, I really do," said Lauderdale County Election Commission Chairman Ann Watts.
Any group interested in a demonstration may call the Election Commission at 601-482-9808.
