LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KATV) -

The Arkansas Secretary of State's Office introduced new voting technology that will be in over 50 Arkansas counties for the November election.

According to KATV, the new machines will help replace the aging machines across the state, which have problems because of old software, sometimes 12-years-old.

These machines are fully equipped with modern technology and are currently being used in 21 counties.

"They'll put a barcode on it that corresponds to your ballot style," Chris Powell, press secretary for Secretary of State's Office said.  

According to Powell, then you insert it into the machine and your voting choices will pop up.

"You make your selections and that paper ballot will pop back out with your votes," Powell said.
