Good News!  We Have New Election Equipment
Local jurisdictions throughout the State of Michigan received new voting equipment this year
which was partially funded by a Federal Grant.
We successfully used the new equipment during the November 7, 2017 Special Election. 
This equipment is an optical scan ballot reader which records votes to a secure electronic flashcard
while also providing a paper trail of the election results.
