City Council Wants New Voting System

Posted By on Tue, Mar 27, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Attention, Diebold! Shelby County voters aren’t the only ones getting new voting machines this election season. The city of Memphis is currently taking proposals for a new City Council voting system.

The city wants a state-of-the-art system that will provide digital audio recordings of meetings, provide citizens access to the files on the city’s Web site, and provide each of the council members with a touch screen interface.

The system should also be able to count to 13, in order to collect and track council votes in real-time, including options for “yes,” “no,” “abstain,” and “ranting."
