New Voting Machines

  

When you go to the polls in September, the old Shoup 3.2 mechanical voting machine - used in city polling places for about half a century - will be gone, replaced by Elections Systems & Software‟s (ES&S) DS200 Scanner and the AutoMark Ballot Marking Device.

ES&S will provide 5,000 to 7,000 voting machines to the city under a $50 million contract. According to the City Board of Elections, the board selected ES&S after completing a thorough evaluation and public hearing process.
