Ballot Issue

The Benton County Quorum Court’s Finance Committee will consider the purchase of software for the Election Commission. The Election Commission is asking for permission to buy a software program to allow the county to create its own ballot for elections rather than pay an outside company to do that work. The software will cost about $60,000 and election officials estimate the savings from doing the work in-house will more than pay for that cost.
