Primary elections are just weeks away and Cameron County is already getting a head start when it comes to preparing staff for the big day.

New voting machines were first used in November, however, that was a small election with only 30 voting locations. During the primary election in March, the location numbers will expand to 102 sites.

Cameron County Elections Administrator Remi Garza says training is a must for poll workers.

“We’ve upgraded our machines since the last primary,” Garza said. “We do want our judges to be familiar with the voter machines because if they feel comfortable with the machines, so will voters.”

Early voting begins Feb. 20. Voters must be registered by Feb. 5.
