Voting System Information
Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and, should the Commissioners decide to approve a new system, they want the public’s input every step of the way.
The Commissioners welcome all residents to attend a Voting Machine Listening Session from 4 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11 in the Susquehanna Township High School gymnasium, 3500 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA 17109.
During the open house, you’ll have the opportunity to try various voting systems and representatives from the manufacturers will be on hand to provide demonstrations and answer questions. The voting systems have two components: Voting Devices to cast a vote and Ballot Scanners to read and tabulate the paper ballots.
We’ll also be gathering feedback forms from attendees the Commissioners will use to help them decide in the near future.
Attendees will be able to try the following:
|FVT Keypad electronic voting tablet||
OVO Ballot Box - ballot scanner
|Election Systems & Software (ES&S)|
|ExpressVote XL voting device||ExpressVote voting device||DS 200 ballot scanner|
|Dominion Voting Systems|
|ImageCast X Ballot Marking Device (ICX BMD)||ImageCast Precinct ballot scanner|
|ClearAccess ballot marking device||ClearCast ballot scanner|
|Verity Duo ballot marking device||Verity Touch Writer ADA-compliant ballot marking device||Verity Scan (printed ballot scanner)|
