Voters learn to vote electronically

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - If you are still on the fence about which way to cast your ballot, on the machine or paper, poll officials are urging you give the machine a try.

"Regardless of whether you vote on paper or a machine or

if you vote early or absentee..we're going to take care of you," says Nelms.

She also says some may be forced to vote paper-less on Tuesday whether they want to or not. She says the election commission ordered far less paper ballots this year, making the chances of running out highly likely.
