Charlottesville City Council on Monday approved a plan that will allow its voter registrar to buy nine new voting machines.
Around 26,000 people have registered to vote in the city, and registrar Sheri Iachetta says an expected record turnout in November means the city will need more machines.

Iachetta says her office will phase in the new machines over time. The total price tag on the optical machines is $48,000, which will come from City Council's Reserve Fund.
