Test New Voting Machines and Provide Input Feb. 21-22


Feb. 10, 2014

Fairfax County voters will have the opportunity to test new voting machines and provide input at five events being held throughout the county on Friday, Feb. 21 and Saturday, Feb. 22.  The Fairfax County Office of Elections is in the process of replacing its aging voting equipment and is reviewing new machines for ease of use, as well as accessibility for people with disabilities and for voters for whom English is not their primary language.

“We have some critical decisions to make this year on purchasing new voting machines for our citizens,” said Electoral Board Secretary Brian Schoeneman. “This is a rare opportunity to provide voters with a chance to test drive different voting machines and give input on what voting equipment will provide them with the best and most secure voting experience.” 

“We are hoping that diverse voters representing all our communities participate in these events,” added General Registrar Cameron Quinn.

No registration or advance notice is required to participate in four of the events. Please note that the Greenspring Village event is for residents and guests only.
