Ready to vote

Published 12:00 am Friday, October 24, 2003

County election officials spent Thursday preparing voting machines for Nov. 4 elections.

Franklin County Court Clerk Guy Zeigler, Sheriff Ted Collins, County Board of Elections representative Helen Price and others spent Thursday preparing for the day Franklin Countians gathered at the Road Department warehouse on Lewis Ferry Road to make sure voting booths will be ready for election day.

They spent the afternoon opening each voting booth, making sure ballots are accurate, testing the batteries which power the electronic machines, and the lamps which highlight the ballots. The voting machines are then sealed and are not to be reopened until delivered to the counties 44 voting precincts on election day.

The aim is to make sure all voting machines are functioning properly for elections. Predicting the race, including the key one for governor, is a different matter.

“I think it’s going to be a fairly close race,” said Zeigler, as he scanned a Shouptronic voting machine. “But I try not to speculate on that too much.”
