Election directors test new equipment, prep for primary

MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. - Election supervisors across the Valley are setting up polling places and testing new equipment.

They expect a 30 to 35 percent turnout at Tuesday's primary. The turnout is usually lower than for general elections.

In Morgan County they're using electronic poll books for the very first time. The equipment will speed up the process by getting rid of the paper check-in.

"So when they go to a line where it's A through L and M through Z and they are in the line that has the longest one because everybody with the last name of 'S' decided to vote at the same time and no one's in the other line they can go to any line any time," said Morgan County Elections Director Kate Terry.

Terry says to not forget your picture ID and know which party you want to vote for.
