CHICAGO (WLS) -- Voters in Chicago and Cook County will be using new voting machines beginning with the 2020 Illinois primary in March.

The county debuted the new voting machines Monday. Voters will use them beginning with early voting for the March 17 primary.

The new machines are part of a move to increase election security and make sure all votes are counted correctly.
