With the addition of two new precincts, Lauderdale County has a shortage of voting machines.

County administrator Rex Hiatt outlined the problem Thursday.

"We've got enough to staff the polling precincts with machines but we don't have any extras if we have mechanical breakdowns the day of election to replace them," said Hiatt.

The board voted to rent three additional machines at $500 each for the next three elections, a total of $4,500.
