The new devices and data system are being installed at each of the state's 1,958 voting locations and are to be ready in time for a Feb. 14 election.
"We're going to have far more detail than we've ever been able to show before," Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax told The Oklahoman.
"We'll be able to drill down and see which precincts haven't reported."
After polling places close and the last ballot is scanned by the machine, a flash drive-like device will be pulled from the voting machine and driven to the county election headquarters, where it can be plugged into a computer and the data uploaded in a matter of seconds rather than minutes like the old system, Ziriax said.
The machines also have devices to help disabled voters, such as the blind, to vote without assistance, Ziriax said.
Previously, a blind voter would have to bring an assistant or rely on a precinct worker to read the ballot aloud and then mark it as the voter instructed. Ziriax that process is invasive and involves the voter trusting another person to cast the ballot as instructed.
Disabled voters will now be given a pad similar to a keyboard that is attached to the machine and has headphones. They can use a dial to scroll through the ballot and press another button to cast their votes using Braille.
The device will also allow devices used by other disabled voters to be plugged into the machine.
The state is paying for the machines, which cost $2,800 each, as well as the software and technical training by using a federal grant that was provided to help states comply with the Help America Vote Act that was passed by Congress in 2002 after the 2000 presidential election.
The only change most voters will see, Ziriax said, is that instead of casting a vote by drawing a line connecting an arrow, voters will now fill in a rectangular box to cast ballots.
