St. Louis City leaders test voting machines ahead of primary

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – St. Louis City leaders are making sure they are doing everything they can to fix election problems.

During local elections in April, there were screen calibration issue machines across St. Louis County.

On July 22, the Board of Elections invited the public to watch as it tested election machines. They are making sure the machines do what they are supposed to do on Election Day. 

While many people are uncertain about the touch screens, there are several ways you can make sure your ballot selections are correct. 

"You can go back and change it. If you say, ‘Oops, I don't want that or I didn't mean to push that,’ you get to go back and start over or go to that particular race and do it again,” said Mary Wheeler Jones, Democratic Director for the St. Louis Board of Elections. “Or you get to go to cast a ballot and you still have another chance to go back if that's not the case. Then once you cast the ballot, you get to look over to the right at the paper results and make sure it’s correct."

The Board of Elections expects a larger amount of Democratic voters to turn out for the election.
