Mississippi Counties Get Money for Voting Upgrades

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — A number of Mississippi’s voting machines are getting federal money for upgrades. 24 counties have been approved to receive about $30,000 from the US Election Assistance Commission and the Mississippi Secretary of State. The Help America Vote Act funds must be spent by the end of next year, and local election officials can decide how to spend on items and activities to improve elections including the purchase of new voting machines or voting equipment, training for post-election procedures, cybersecurity audits, enhancement of a county’s network and disability access at precincts.
