Eight thousand Bulgarian voters tested the experimental voting machines at the European elections, reported the Central Electoral Commission (CEC), quoted by Sega daily. 

CEC will analyse the outcome and will present the official data next week. 

The machine voting was introduced by the new Electoral Code and was tested for the first time in 100 polling stations in Sofia and the Pazardzhik region. Voters could test the machines, but still had to cast a traditional ballot for their vote to be recognized. 

The initial CEC data shows that the voters in the 55 polling stations in Sofia showed a considerable interest in the voting machines, while those in Pazardzhik didn't.
