A new study found that Texas is one of ten states with questionable voting practices, affecting the accuracy of counting votes.
Taylor County election officials have seen the report and say systems are in place to make sure people can't vote more than once.
Abilene's election administrator, Kristi Allyn says, "We do have to keep track of how many voters sign in each day and how many ballots were cast on the equipment. So, we do keep track of that daily and we do have to balance that. We have checks and balances, and we make sure every day that those are balanced."
Majority of voters in Abilene feel confident that their votes will be properly counted.
As for poll problems that could arise, there are a variety of precautions polls can take to prevent potential technological glitches, such as emergency paper ballots.
Abilene polls do have these in case of machine emergencies.
Kristi Allyn adds, "We've always been required to test our equipment and we continuet o dot hat and everything works out fine. And if there is ever a problem, we out find immediately, before the equipment is deployed. We've never had a test that did not turn out with complete accuracy."
It's accuracy that Abilene is counting on to ensure every vote matters.
