The voting machines underwent a logic and accuracy testing and ballot proofing procedure at the election offices. The testing is a part of the $30,000 the commission approved to perform a weeklong early voting event at Town Hall at the end of the week.
The machines will be delivered to Town Hall Thursday, Jan. 14 in preparation for early voting, which begins Friday, Jan. 15.
All three candidates are expected to make appearances at Town Hall Friday to talk to voters and encourage voting.
