Get to Know Your New Voting Machines! Demonstration in Lansing Tuesday, April 20.

Friday, April 16, 2010
The Tompkins County Board of Elections will hold a demonstration of the county's new optical scan voting machines next Tuesday, April 20, from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Lansing Community Library, 27 Auburn Road.

The session will give voters a chance to learn about and try out the voting machine, prior to Lansing Village elections April 27.

This will be the first time most Lansing voters have used the optical scan machine. The new machines were used on a pilot basis in last year's general election in the City of Ithaca, as well as for elections held in other local villages last month.

Looking ahead, brief demonstrations also will be held Tuesday May 18 during the Ithaca School Board elections (which will not use the new machines for their voting). Demonstrations will take place at four polling sites--'Enfield Elementary School (12:00-1:30 p.m.); Alternative Community School (2:30-4:00 p.m.); Caroline Elementary School (5:00-6:30 p.m.); and Northeast Elementary School (7:30-9:00 p.m.)

Six more sessions around the County are scheduled this summer. For a list of the demonstrations so far, visit the Board of Elections web site at votetompkins.com.

For more information about these events, call the Board of Elections at 274-5522.
