Pulaski County’s voting machine security procedures were officially put in writing by the election board last week. Board members approved a resolution officially outlining the security protocol.
It calls for all voting machines and poll pads to be sealed after each election period and stored in separate locked areas in the courthouse. If the election board decides to get rid of any equipment, it must be given to a state-approved vendor and not directly to another county.
The State of Indiana has increased the regulations for voting machine storage in recent years. Clerk JoLynn Behny said the resolution had been written up last summer, but due to the turnover in election board members and the health issues of former Clerk Christi Hoffa, it hadn’t been adopted until last week.
