Goodbye Ledgers! Onondaga County Voters Will Use Electronic Poll Books to Check-in – WAER

If it’s correct, commissioner Dustin Czarny says voters will use the tablet to sign their name. 

“This is how our poll workers will verify, just like a paper poll book.  They will then see what the signature is, make sure it is that person…same processes in place that we’ve had before.”

The reason for the “Poll Pads,” and their first real test, will be during nine days of early voting across the county starting October 26th

Commissioner Dustin Czarny, right, holds up an instant ballot and a receipt. The ballots will print on site during early voting. A receipt is printed for the county’s records. Commissioner Michele Sardo is at left.

We can instantly download who voted in the early voting process, and make sure all of the 400 poll pads will be updated by Tuesday morning at 6 a.m. when the polls open.  Then we can make sure no one can vote early, and vote on election day.”
