Election Officials Request More Voting Machines

Fairfax County election officials are warning that unless the county can acquire more voting machines before November's Presidential election, voters could be facing long lines. General Registrar Jacquelynne C. Harris said that at least 300 optical scanner machines will be needed, but other officials are concerned that the $2.5 million dollar price tag, for a county already on a tight budget, may make the purchase of the new machines problematic.
