Franklin County to get new voting machines

Local

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – New voting machines are coming to Franklin County.

County commissioners still have to approve the funding. The upgrades are expected to cost taxpayers about $500,000.

“These new machines will be similar to our current machines except they are an upgraded model with better electronics in them, better software. As newer machines, they should be able to last us many years into the future,” said Jerry Warnement, the county’s election commissioner.

Gov. Tom Wolf has ordered all counties in Pennsylvania to replace their voting equipment before the 2020 primary.
