Mayor Corroon says upkeep of Electronic Voting Machines Costing "Million and Millions"


Dec 08, 2006 by Shawn Mansell


(KCPW News) Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon, says the upkeep and storage of electronic voting machines is taking a toll on the county's budget:


"The federal government gave us money for new machines but they didn't give us money for storing the machines. They didn't give us money to hire new technicians for these machines."


The County budget for 2007 doesn't include money for more machines. Corroon says technical support and housing for existing machines has cost the county "millions and millions" of dollars already and he hopes the state and federal governments step up and help with the expense.
