New voting machines in Muskegon

MUSKEGON, MICH. - People across the state are voting in primary elections on Tuesday, Aug. 8.

In Muskegon, voters are casting ballots on new voting machines. The State of Michigan is investing $40 million into the new equipment and Muskegon is one of 60 cities making the switch. 

The new voting systems will use digital optical-scan technology, which is said to be faster, more user-friendly, and better maintains a paper trail. All precincts across the state will make the switch by this time next year.

WZZM 13 will have results from elections across West Michigan once all the ballots are in, so be sure to check back.
