A Virginia city's primary in June will mark a milestone for Surface Pro.

 

More than two and a quarter centuries after Charlottesville, Va. played a major role in the American Revolutionary War, the historic city of 44,000 will hold a primary election that itself is revolutionary.

 

For the first time, a Microsoft Surface Pro tablet will be used to cast votes when citizens elect state and local candidates on June 11, according to municipal officials. The Intel-powered Surface Pro is planned to be used in two precincts. Up until this week, a special election in April was marked for the milestone, but the city has decided that the promise of a better turnout for a primary would provide officials with the proper amount of data and feedback if they are to move forward on a grand scale.
