Preventing voting machine glitch for primary

York

York County is doing three things to make sure votes are secure in Tuesday’s primary election after a voting machine glitch in November.

York County communications director Mark Walters says in November, the machines were programmed as if the election were a primary, and that’s part of what led to the issue. Walters says the machines will be correctly programmed for the primary.

“We have had our election staff get retrained by the Dominion, the company who operates and makes the machines,” said Walters. “While the machines are being programmed, Dominion has sent officials to oversee that process while our department gets them ready for Tuesday.”

Walters says York County’s 624 voting machines are ready for the big day. 

“We’ve got this. Our election department knows what it’s doing,” said Walters. 

Also new for this election: York Township will be split into two congressional districts.
