Voting Machine Demonstrations in Northampton County

Tuesday, August 6, 2019 by The Press in Local News

Lamont McClure and the Department of Elections will hold demonstrations of the new Election Systems & Software (ES&S) ExpressVote XL voting machines at sites around Northampton County before the Nov. 5 election.

Members of the public will be able to cast a mock ballot so they can see how the machine functions. Employees from the Election Office will be on hand to provide guidance and answer any questions.

An ExpressVote XL machine will also be on display in the Rotunda of the county courthouse at 669 Washington St., Easton from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Citizens who wish to fill out a mock ballot on the machine may do so at the elections office located on the first floor.

County council voted to approve the purchase of the ES&S ExpressVote EL machines at its May 16 meeting for the price of $2,879,377.
