A state grant will allow Kandiyohi County to purchase 16 new optical scan machines for tabulating election ballots, including a backup machine in the Auditor's Office. Kandiyohi County Auditor-Treasurer Mark Thompson, shown in a November 2016 file photo, said having a backup should avoid the glitch in 2016 when absentee ballots all had to be run through the scanner a second time with only one machine available.
