Electronic vote recording machines replaced with devices that count votes from paper ballots
Voters will encounter a new kind of machine when they head to the polls next month.
The new Dominion Voting ImageCast Evolution (ICE) machines will replace those that recorded votes electronically, said county clerk-recorder Alissia Northrup. They will allow voters to cast a paper ballot while pointing out any errors, ambiguous marks or races they may have missed.
The new machines will also allow voters who are vision impaired to input their selection electronically while marking a paper ballot for them.
Real Estate sales are up in Del Norte County, with some of the higher end homes going to Chinese buyers, said Jim Peters of Ming Tree Realtors and president of the Del Norte Board of Realtors during his presentation at last week’s Crescent City Del Norte County Chamber of Commerce Economic Summit.
Peter’s had good news to share with assembled crowd and said, “The number of houses sold increased by 10 percent between 2013 and 2015. And the total days on the market decreased.”
Crescent City Council voted 4-1 late Monday to rescind a letter sent last month to the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality supporting a petition to designate the Oregon section of the North Fork of the Smith River as an Outstanding Resource Water (ORW).
