Lubbock Voters Approve Of Electronic Voting Machines

For the first time, Lubbock County voters used electronic voting machines to cast their ballot in an election.

Lubbock County set a voting record during the early voting period. Elections Administrator Dorothy Kennedy says 13,000 people voted early during the two week early voting period. That's twice as many ballots cast in the last amendment election.

In addition, Kennedy says she's received positive feedback about the new voting system.

"We had a lady tell us it was easier than pencil and paper. So comments like that were very positive and we were glad and that was great for us, especially the first time out," said Kennedy.
