Residents may try out new voting machines

LOCK HAVEN — Clinton County will host demonstrations of the new voting system over the next several weeks.

Anyone that wants to get acclimated to the new voting experience is welcome to attend.

New voting machines are a requirement since Gov. Tom Wolf , who put out a mandate for upgraded equipment last year.
