New voting machines introduced in Wisconsin

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Don't be surprised if you see a different type of voting machine at the polls this year. Wisconsin Public Radio says new machines will be used in Dane, Brown, La Crosse, and Jefferson counties -- and they're meant to be more secure and reliable.

Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell says the machines record images of the ballots, to serve as a record in case something happens to the originals. The ballots are filed on a random basis, so they cannot be linked to specific voters. The machines also have screens which show whether a ballot was accepted or not. McDonell says Wood and Portage counties have already been using the new machines.
