County agrees to bigger match for new voting machines

by Kate Shunney

During a special meeting last Wednesday, October 12, the Morgan County Commission voted to boost the local cash match to a grant that will buy 75 new voting machines for the county.

Previously, commissioners agreed to commit $217,037 from county carryover funds to act as a 50% match to the grant, if successful.

Morgan County Clerk Kim Nickles is applying for the grant funds from the Help America Vote . . .
