The Chemung County Board of Elections is assuring voters there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to casting votes on Election Day.
Not only are the polling machines tested every three months, there’s also a special pre-election test conducted to ensure the efficiency of the machines.
“If you’re really concerned about the machine taking your vote, before you scan your vote into the machine if you tell the poll worker, ‘I want to see how I voted,’ they can arrange that for you,” Chemung County Democratic Elections Commissioner Cindy Emmer said. “But once you put your ballot into the scanner, that’s it.”
Emmer also informed 18 News of two changes to poll locations in Chemung County:
At the Ernie Davis Academy, voting will take place in a different room than on previous Election Days. When driving to the school, voters should drive to the right of the administrative building to the center parking lot, then use the middle doors and follow signs to the voting room.
In Pine City, voting will take place in the gym. As you drive in, do not drive to the roundabout. Instead, take the driveway to the right to park.
