How do you vote?

By MEGHANN GARCIA

Public opinion was split Tuesday evening when Uvalde County Commissioners hosted a public hearing to solicit input about electronic voting. While several people proffered support for updating electronic voting equipment, most eschewed the idea of converting to the countywide polling place program which would eliminate paper ballots.

The forum, held at the Uvalde County Event Center at the Fairplex after a brief but intense rain storm, was hosted by commissioners and Uvalde County election administrator Melissa Jones, who gave a presentation about electronic voting that preceded an equipment overview from Ken Trethewey of Hart InterCivic.
