If you want to test out the new voting machines Georgians will use in the upcoming elections, many counties have set up demonstration stations for voters.

Chris Harvey, elections division director for the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, demonstrated how to use the new voting machines at a meeting of the Georgia Association of Broadcasters at the University of Georgia. This will be the new technology for the upcoming presidential primary election on March 24.

If you live in Northeast Georgia, see the list below for where you can check out the new machines:
