SURRY—After major security concerns were brought to light over the summer, DRE voting machines used by Surry County were decommissioned by the Virginia Department of Elections Friday.

In anticipation of the decommissioning, the Surry County Board of Supervisors voted Thursday to replace its compromised machines with eight new DS200 voting machines, to be used in the upcoming November election. The payment of $82,999 for the new election equipment will be deferred by the county until July 2018.
