Joseph Passarella, regional sales manager for ES&S, demonstrates how to use the new electronic voting machines in this September 2019 file photo.

There will not be a referendum in the Nov. 8 general election asking Washington County voters whether they want to get rid of the electronic voting machines after the group pushing the effort failed to gather enough signatures to place the question on the ballot.

Several residents spoke at Thursday afternoon’s Washington County Board of Commissioners meeting in favor of placing the referendum on the ballot, citing two separate petition drives over the summer pushing to decommission the county’s electronic voting machines in favor of paper ballots.
