Onondaga County Democratic Elections Commissioner Dustin Czarny says this change in technology has several advantages.
“We hope that it’ll be more efficient, both on the voter end, and our data collection end at the end of the election,” Czarny said. “Greener of course, because we won’t be printing poll books three or four times a year, and also it’s going to be better access for the voters.”
Czarny says something like this, ultimately, will be cheaper, too.
“If we ever go to a county-wide electronic poll book, you would see an initial cost investment for any individual county doing this, but long-term savings,” Czarny said.
