It appears Election Day 2010 will go off as planned in Harris county.
There were concerns after a massive fire on August 27 destroyed 10,000 e-slate voting machines.
However, thanks to a little help from other counties around Texas, both the runoff election and election day will be saved.
875 machines arrived at Reliant Arena Monday morning from Fort Bend and Tarrant counties.
At least 14 counties in all will let Harris county borrow any excess voting machines.
As a backup, Harris county also ordered paper ballots in the event there are not enough machines for the big day.
The extra cost will increase the price for this year's election to $4 million.
