The Trigg County Fiscal Court will have to revise their budget after bids for new voting machines were well over the $75,000 allotted by the state.

Each bid, which came from three companies, was in the $90,000 range. Each would pay for 14 or 15 new voting machines, plus other equipment that would keep a paper trail to help if a recount were called or the tally was questioned and count ballots of absent voters.

The three companies, AccuPoll, Inc., Harp Enterprise and Kentuckiana Election sent sealed bids to the court for their approval. Butch Pass, a representative for Harp, was on hand at the meeting and told the court that the extra money would be covered by the state.

“You will receive it,” Pass said. “You will receive every bit of it.”
