Georgia election officials have shipped the last truckloads of new voting machines to polling places.

The new voting machines will make their debut during the March presidential primaries. Trucks departed Atlanta on Friday, carrying devices for the remaining six counties awaiting shipments.

Georgia’s presidential primary is March 24, and early voting starts March 2.

Thomas County in south Georgia is among those last six counties to get the new machines.

Its elections supervisor, Frank Scoggins, said he’ll be ready despite the tight deadline.
