Prior to approving the adoption and acquisition of any new voting system by the Board of County Commissioners, the County Board of Elections members must witness a demonstration of the type of voting system to be recommended, as well as one other type of certified voting system.

This demonstration will occur on Monday, Sept. 23 at the Valerie C. Woodard Center auditorium, 3205 Freedom Drive, Charlotte for three voting systems certified by the State Board of Elections on Aug. 23. Vendors will conduct demonstrations between:

  • 9 - 11 a.m.
  • 1 - 3 p.m.
  • 7 - 9 p.m.

These demonstrations are open to the public and will take place concurrently, allowing County Board members to rotate to each of the three vendors during each of the three sessions. The Mecklenburg County Board of Elections will be attending only for demonstration purposes.
