Winston-Salem, NC – Prior to approving the purchase of new voting machines,
the Forsyth County Board of Elections will host a public demonstration of newly
certified equipment to be used beginning in 2020. All are welcome to attend the
demonstration on Friday, September 20, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at
the Forsyth County Government Center, 201 N. Chestnut Street – 4th Floor,

Forsyth County currently uses the iVotronic touch-screen voting machines for early
voting and due to state law changes, that equipment will be decertified on December
1, 2019. Starting in 2020, all voting systems must produce a paper ballot, which will
serve as the official record of voters’ selections.
Each vendor will be available throughout the event to allow the public to view and
test on the various machines. Additionally, the Forsyth County Board of Elections
members will rotate to each of the three vendors for fifteen-minute presentations
during the event. The Board of Elections will meet at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, September
24th to make its voting system recommendation.
If there are any questions, please call the Board of Elections office at (336) 703-2800.
