Commissioners to purchase voting machines for county PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 10 March 2010 00:00
    At the recent Washington County Commissioners meeting held on March 3, the group made a decision to purchase 19  used voting machines for $131,420, from HARP Election Services, based out of Lexington, Ky.
    The current county voting machines will not be state certified after the 2010 election.
    The machines were orginally used in Hawaii and due to a legal battle in that state, HARP made the choice to take back the machines a re-sale at a discounted price.
    “This discounted price will not be available for long, I simply just came across it a few days ago,” said Washington County Clerk Shirley Batt. “I am trying to save money for the county, new machines could run up to $350,000.”
    According to Batt, the warranties that come with the used machines are equivilent to new machines and the first payment to HARP will not occur until January 2011.
