Voters in Butler County may be using the current voting systems for the last time.
Earlier this month, the Butler County Election Board approved the purchase of a new voting system that is paper-based. Voters will actually use a pen or pencil to color-in the oval next to a candidate’s name and then drop the ballot into a secure ballot box, where it will be scanned into a computer and tabulated.
Last year, the state mandated that all counties switch to a voting system that had a verifiable paper record that could be referenced should there be a discrepancy.
Butler County Elections Director Shari Brewer says the county plans to have the new system up and running by the November 2019 general election.
