LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ The Arkansas Secretary of State and a private
vendor say they're working to ensure that all counties will have
proper equipment in time for the May 23 primary election.
At least three counties are waiting for software for
touch-screen voting machines. In Pulaski County, officials say they
expect to receive the necessary software on Monday.
Without this software, election officials cannot test ballots to
make sure that a machine will tabulate the results correctly.
Sebastian and Garland counties also are waiting for software.
