DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — Voters in Carroll County can head to the polls with confidence in November.

The county board of elections tested all 60 voting machines and found no problems. The board sent each machine through a mock election to test the software and the results matched predetermined totals.

Carroll County Clerk Andrea Miller said testing the machines is an important part in the election process.

“For my piece of mind and for the voters piece of mind, just to make sure everything is working the way it’s supposed to be,” Miller said.

She said even though using touch screens is a relatively new way to vote, people in Carroll County are used to them.

“Some people are intimidated by them at first. But once they’ve come in and voted, most of them walk out and say, ‘that was so easy. I don’t know why it concerned me,'” Miller said.

On Election Day, there will be six voting machines at 10 locations throughout Carroll County.
