All of the communities in Outagamie County might buy the same election equipment.
The county would split the cost 50-50, under a proposal that the county board approved yesterday afternoon.
County Clerk Lori O'Bright hopes that will convince local government leaders to upgrade to the newer technology. O'Bright says the municipalities would be able to wire their results to the clerk's office on election nights.
And she says if any of them would have a problem with a machine, they could ask a neighboring community to borrow one.
O'Bright wants to have the county-wide system in place by next year's primary in February.
