On this election day, there will be a new experience for a lot of voters. Many of them will be using the new electronic voting machines for the first time.
That's because some people only vote in presidential election years, and the new voting machines haven't been in use for quite that long.
But Monroe County Republican Elections Commissioner Peter Quinn says even for those who have not voted in the general election for a few years, many of them may have voted in other elections, such as school districts, where they may have used the new technology:
"The school district elections, fire district elections, things of that nature, there have been a lot of people that have seen and used this machine that have not voted in our previous elections."
And Democrat County Elections Commissioner Tom Ferrarese notes that more than 400 thousand people registered to vote this year:
"We have over 1500 additional privacy stations set up in the polling places across the county just to deal with what we anticipate to be the larger turnout."
Turnout in Monroe County is expected to be somewhere between 80 and 85 percent. Voting on Tuesday is from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
