GREENE COUNTY, Ark. (KAIT) - Big changes are coming for Greene County voters, starting this year.
Voters can now cast their vote at any of the nine voting centers in the county, according to election commissioner Paulette Parker.
“I am excited,” she says. “I think all the election commissioners are excited and the people I’ve talked to in various groups that I volunteer with, they seem to be excited.”
In 2019, quorum court members agreed to a matching grant to fund new voting machines.
This includes 55 express votes machines, 17 DS200s, which are used to calculate votes, and 30 electronic poll books.
The poll books are now accessible to the internet. This connection allows voters to update any registration information at the voting centers.
