Knox County will soon catch up with the rest of the state with the updating of its official voting machines. According to Judge Executive J.M. Hall, Knox is the only county in the state of Kentucky that still uses non-electronic voting machines. Approximately 45 new machines will be purchased through a state grant.

“We’ve had complaints of buttons not lighting up, and the old machines are hard to get parts for,” he explained. “As the new machines will be electronic, we may even be able to get voting results back to the county clerk faster.”
