In a basement beneath the North Main Street Annex, the testing and zeroing-out of Bulloch County’s voting machines is underway, in preparation for early voting starting Oct. 17 and the Nov. 8 general election. Election Supervisor Pat Lanier Jones and three citizens who are not regular county employees but help with elections started the “logic and accuracy” testing of the touch-screen voting machines at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. The process is repeated before every election.
