The Dallam County Commissioners approved a contract with Election Systems & Software out of Omaha, Neb. for new voting machines for the county during their regularly scheduled board meeting Monday morning. 

According to Dallam County and District Clerk Terri Banks, the contract is right at $50,000 and would allow the county to upgrade its current machines, which date back to 1995. 

“We got the equipment in 2004, but the machines themselves date back to 1995,” she said.
