CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) — Cumberland County Board of Elections selected a new voting system.
The board chose the Elections Systems & Software Express Vote XL voting machines. It has a 32 inch HD interactive electronic voting screen and a voter-verified paper record for tabulation, according to the county.
County officials reviewed several machine options at a meeting on June 4 and made their selection on Wednesday.
The governor has ordered all counties to upgrade to voting machines that leave a paper trail. It’s a way to protect against hacking and allow for more accurate and reliable post-election audits.
