Voting Machine Demonstration


Fear of how to use the voting machines is one reason individuals do not come out to vote on Election Day.  Our goal is to make the voting process for all Madison County citizens a positive experience.  During non-election times, you can schedule to have voting machines at your school or civic group.  To reserve the voting machines, please contact our office.  We encourage groups to show the “How to Vote Video”.
