During the regular October meeting of the Board of Election Commissioners, a question was asked during the explanation of Bills about the use of flashdrives. Executive Director Tom Bride explained that once the drives are used in voting equipment, they are never again used in voting equipment. They can be utilized for other purposes, but not in voting equipment.
As of October 16, 9000 ballots had been sent out with 47% returned already. Director Bride anticipates 35% voting early. Early voting at satellite sites begins on October 21.
