BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana lawmakers intend a close watch as the state shops for new voting machines.

The solicitation for contractors went out last week.

Lawmakers are planning a joint hearing of the House and Senate elections oversight committees later this month to dig into the details of Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin's effort to replace 10,000 decades-old voting machines.

Louisiana is expected to be the only state in the market for new machines this year, putting a spotlight on its work.
