Public Input Needed on Electronic Voting Machines

Lubbock County wants your input before spending thousands on electronic voting machines.

Two weeks ago, we told you the county received $280,000 in federal grant money to pay for the machines. The machines will offer either a digital dial or a touch screen to make it easier for the disabled to vote.

Voting Machines for the Disabled
Lubbock's voting system is taking a positive turn for the disabled community.

The first of four public hearings on the issue will be held at 7pm on Thursday, February 17th. All hearings will be held at the Lubbock County Courthouse, 1302 Avenue G, in the central jury pool room.

The remaining three hearings will be held on the following dates:

  • Friday, February 18 at 7pm
  • Wednesday, February 23 at 6:30pm
  • Monday, February 28 at 7pm
