HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Madison County's voting machines are ready to go for next week's primary election. Wednesday, the public got a chance to test and see the new machines.

Election officials said they tested all of the machines Friday and there were no issues. They said the new machines eliminate human error and avoid hand counting ballots.

Besides new machines, the major change is the voter identification requirement.

"Voters need to be prepared and have a piece of photo identification that is acceptable," said Frank Barger, Elections Administrator for Madison County. "Your voter registration card is no longer sufficient."

There are several acceptable forms of identification, including your driver's license, military, work or school ID. To see a full list, visit this website.
