Touch-screen voting equipment on the way

Dylan Riley

The Douglas County Board of Commissioners met Thursday in Stateline to discuss the ongoing effort to upgrade touch-screen voting equipment.

“I believe I have 10 machines arriving some time next week out of 160,” Clerk-Treasurer Barbara Reed said. “But I do not have a date on the other 150.”

The Nevada Board of Examiners approved a contract last month to buy more than 4,500 Sequoia-brand electronic voting machines for $9.3 million.

Sequoia is an elections systems company which develops and supports elections database systems and produces election equipment.

Board member James Baushke advised Reed of an additional security measure to consider with the arrival of the new touch screen machines. “One of the very first things that you should do when you get these machines is make sure they’re commissioner proof,” he joked.

On the agenda for the liquor license board and gaming license board:

n Approval of a request to give a manufacturer’s license to Tahoe Ridge Vineyards & Winery, Inc.

n Approval of a request to change the name of Nevada Gourmet Grocery, Ltd. to Te Bank, Parlor & Pub in addition to an on sale liquor license.

n Approval of a Cabaret Class B liquor license, a catering license and a resticted gaming license for Coyote Sports Bar & Grill.
