Horry voting machines melt down (SC)    Story Here  Archive
Jim Hulen-NorthMyrlteBeachOnline.com 20 January 2008
Before every election, all voting machines are tested to make sure they are operating correctly.  One way this is done is by casting test votes on the machine to be sure it is recording them accurately.  The final step in this process is to perform a "clear and test" procedure.  This resets the test votes recorded on the machine to zero.  Without performing this measure, the voting system will not allow machines to be opened for voting on Election Day.  Horry County voting machine technicians worked throughout the morning and early afternoon to visit these affected precincts and perform this procedure.
