Contrary to what the fiscal court was told two weeks ago regarding the purchase of voting machines, the state said the county will have to assume the extra cost of voting machines that were bid at $92,000

The Secretary of State’s office said that Trigg County is allotted a total of $82,650 for the purchase of 15 new voting machines, upgrades on 20 existing machines and purchase of one optical scanning absentee ballot.

Leaving nearly $10,000 unaccounted for, a representative of Harp Enterprise – who was awarded the bid – said the county would be able to recoup the cost from the state.

“You will receive every bit of it,” Butch Pass said at the meeting Oct. 18.
