St. Albans to use tabulator machines for state ballots

Posted Nov. 01, 2012, at 7:38 p.m.

ST. ALBANS, Maine — For the first time, St. Albans voters will be using a tabulator machine to cast their ballots Nov. 6.

Voters will use paper ballots to fill in the oval of their choice on the state ballot instead of making a check mark or an X. Those ballots will then be counted after being placed in a tabulator machine. Officials will be on hand to help voters place their ballots in the tabulator machines for the state ballot.

However, for the RSU 19 loan proposal ballot, voters will be asked to vote by making a check mark or an X next to their choice. Those ballots will be placed in a wooden box and counted by hand as in previous years.

Residents may vote at 7 Water Street from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Nov. 6.
