COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - Georgia is trying to modernize the way people vote.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp created the SAFE Commission. They're reviewing the voting systems and will make a recommendation to General Assembly next year. Some voters say they are ready for change. One vendor who says change is inevitable.

"People push back often times on change. Voting is no different then any other process, there are people that are retisent at changing but Georgia has already made their decision to shift their focus on change and change to more modern systems & digital systems," says Matthew Horace.

This won't come cheap, these systems can cost anywhere from 40 to 100 million dollars.
