SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah residents will soon get a chance to try out new voting technology to replace the old punch-card system.

The State Elections Office plans to hold a mock election this month where registered voters can try out four different voting devices. One of them will end up in local polling places by next year's primary election.

Two of the devices on display will be touch-screen versions while the other two will be optical scan.

Utah will be one of the last states to make the switch from punch-card machines to a newer type of voting equipment.

The mock election will be held on March 30th at the South Towne Mall in Sandy.
