DS200 - Ballot Scanner & Vote Tabulator
The DS200 is a precinct-based ballot scanner and vote tabulator, fully certified and compliant with EAC (Election Assistance Commission) guidelines.
After the voter marks their ballot with the Express Vote, the voter will then insert their ballot into the scanner. The ballot will then drop into the main ballot compartment completing the process.
ES&S ExpressPoll (Electronic Pollbooks)
The Election Services office will be transitioning all polling locations to electronic pollbooks beginning the 2022 Primary. The ES&S ExpressPoll is an easy-to-use alternative to traditional paper pollbooks. Election workers will now be able to search for voters by name, date of birth and/or voter identification number. The ExpressPoll is also equipped with a barcode scanner. The barcode scanner allows voters the option to scan the back of their PA Driver's License and pull up their information quickly. Once a voter's information has been located, the voter can sign the ExpressPoll screen using their finger or a stylus. Please do not use PENS on the ExpressPoll screen!
