Guilford County’s elections board is expected to make a decision Tuesday on which new voting machines they’d like to use for next year’s vote.

Election officials had previously postponed making a recommendation on which vendor to use, adding to the time crunch to get them in place for next year’s elections.

The county is replacing its current equipment after the state mandated machines that provide a paper ballot. 

Three vendors are under consideration. County elections officials held a public demonstration of those machines in mid-September.

There are municipal elections in Guilford this year but the new equipment won’t be fully adopted for use until 2020.

Forsyth County’s elections board unanimously approved Elections Systems and Software as their preferred vendor last week.
