NEW YORK CITY, New York: New York City has a new voting system in place, replacing the old procedure of lever machines in city wide elections. The city Board of Elections decided to use the new Election Systems and Software DS200 voting machine over the older procedures.

According to reports, the machine has a display with a touch-screen system and allows voters to insert paper ballots. The scanner machine then reads the votes and saves the paper ballot inside. The machine saves the paper ballot by dropping the sheet into a locked collection area under the machine.[1]
