Knox county joining the 20th century

An electronic voting system could soon be coming to Knox County. People could potentially see in real time which commissioners vote whatever way in Knox County.

Commissioners will discuss this in the work session Monday.

For the wonks out there, this is a big move – will help cut the fevered note-checking and questions among we media types on who voted for what. And it would help us ensure further accuracy when reporting who voted for what.

This is good news – if it passes, of course.

Resolution here.

This would potentially add a few more bells and whistles too, but a simple vote tracker is a good thing to have. It would help the public keep commissioners straight too, on who is voting for what.
