SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake County leaders have decided to use Utah's choice of electronic voting machines.
County leaders were unwilling to walk away from ten (M)million dollars in federal funds for the Diebold machines.
However, Salt Lake County Council members are still concerned the state's choice will leave the county with an additional price tag to get the staff, extra machines and storage space.
Mayor Peter Corroon says he's a little worried because they're in some uncharted territory. However, he added the county doesn't have much choice if it's going to meet federal regulations that requires each state to upgrade its voting systems.
