New voting machines are ready for use in Brazos County

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - New voting machines in Brazos County have been tested and are ready to go.

The Brazos County Elections Administration spent last week testing out the new voting machines. They are still an electronic system, but will now be all touch screen.

There are also 60 handicap accessible machines. Only 12 of the new machines had defects and will be sent back to the producer for maintenance.

The new machines will be used for the first time on May 4.
