Keystone State Election Officials Have a New Solution for Fast, Efficient, Secure Processes
HARRISBURG, PA – This month, the Acting Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania certified that Civix e-Pollbook complies with all applicable requirements and therefore can be used in the state’s elections.
“We are proud to have met Pennsylvania’s high standards for e-Pollbooks and offer it to counties so they can empower poll workers through every step of the voting process,” said Civix Product Director John Morrison. “Highly configurable, our e-Pollbook can be customized to any jurisdiction’s specifications and deployed in a matter of minutes. Managing precincts has never been easier.”
Listed by the Department of State as ePollTAB 1.2, Civix e-Pollbooks serves as a complete precinct management system, and it stands apart from paper and other electronic pollbooks through a variety of unique features.
With customizable check-in processes, the e-Pollbook allows poll workers to scan a voter’s ID to access and authenticate his or her information. It then prints out a voter-specific ballot on demand.
Data from each device in a secure network is instantly shared with all others – across the entire jurisdiction. This real-time synchronization allows for unprecedented levels of efficiency, authentication, recovery, and analysis. An intelligent dashboard makes it easy to analyze wait times, voter turnout, and more – in real time.
Civix e-Pollbook can run on virtually any device and operating system, so precincts do not have to invest in new hardware. Another unique cost-saving feature is that it enables on-demand ballots, so there’s no need for expensive stockpiles of pre-printed ballots.
Security is at the center of Civix e-Pollbook’s architecture, which includes multiple layers of security that must all work together to operate. This is complemented by full audit capability and 24/7/365 continuous monitoring.
In addition to Pennsylvania, Civix e-Pollbook is certified in other states, including Kentucky and Virginia, and Civix solutions have been used to manage over 50 million U.S. voters. The company offers a suite of modular solutions that combine to create an end-to-end election management system.
