Old NYC voting machines may get new lease on life

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City's old lever voting machines may get a new lease on life.

The Board of Elections is asking the city council for funding to help convert the old voting machines into voter information kiosks.

The machines required voters to pull down a lever to cast their ballots. They were in use for 50 years but were largely phased out of service in 2010.

They have been replaced by electronic voting machines.

But those machines have encountered problems in recent elections. That forced the lever machines to be called out of retirement for last year's mayoral primary.

The information kiosks would be equipped with a computer that would inform voters about polling sites and ballot procedures.
