Did You Know?
Electronic poll books (e-poll books), paid for with Federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) funds, have been used since February 23, 2010 special election. The e-poll book is an electronic version of the paper poll book and voter registration list formerly used in the precincts. Utilization of e-poll books will streamline the election process for voters and precinct workers, and expedite updating of voter history by City staff after elections.
Driver’s license scanners, also funded by HAVA are designed to electronically verify voter status and load voter and ballot information into the e-poll books. The scanners have been helpful in minimizing wait times and further ensuring accuracy at the polling locations.
