Millman Invites Public to Local Libraries for Electronic Voting Machine Demonstrations

July 19, 2010
Brooklyn, NY— Assemblywoman Joan L. Millman, Chair of the Assembly’s Election Law Committee, has arranged a series of public demonstrations of the new optical scan voting machines at local senior centers and libraries. In order to comply with the federal Help America Vote Act, New York State will be fully implementing the use of new electronic voting machines in the upcoming September 14th Primary Election. The New York City Board of Elections, working with Assemblywoman Millman, has organized these open community demonstrations as an opportunity for voters to familiarize themselves with the machines before the election.

Next week, two demonstrations will take place in the 52nd Assembly District at the Carroll Gardens and Brooklyn Heights Branches of the Brooklyn Public Library. All members of the public are encouraged to come try out the new machines and ask questions. Further details are below.
