Seniors Get Look At New ‘ExpressVote’ System

May 31, 2017

The Escambia County Supervisor of Elections Office is testing their new ADA-compliant  ExpressVote system, recently taking it on the road to demonstrate it to senior citizens in Cantonment and Century.

The ExpressVote uses a touch-screen device to mark a paper ballot for tabulation. Voters can received audio assistance, or even Braille instructions, allowing all voters to cast their ballot, regardless of their abilities or disabilities.

The ExpressVote device was used first in the recent special election in Century earlier this year. Last week, Elections Office staff demonstrated the devices at the Council on Aging meal site in Century last Thursday and Tuesday at the Cantonment Council on Aging meal site.

There were will be one of the ExpressVote devices available at each precinct during the 2018 election.
