OKOLONA, Miss. (WTVA) -- It's a first for Okolona.
When voters head to the polls for city elections Tuesday, May 7, they will be able to cast their ballot on electronic voting machines.
This move follows approval of the city's redistricting proposal by the U.S. Department of Justice.
City Attorney Gene Barton says voters will notice the machines, but what will not really be noticeable are the new district lines.
"Very few people's districts were changed. It's not going to have any affect on who gets elected as far as the redistricting. It's not going to give anybody an advantage," Barton said.
Barton says the location of voter polls will remain the same.
