Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 20, 2015
Hart InterCivic, a leading national provider of election voting systems, management products and services, announced today it will supply DuPage County, Illinois with electronic poll books that will replace the paper precinct rosters used for checking in voters on Election Day. With the addition of Hart’s ePollBook™, DuPage will provide a seamless integration for voters at the polls making the process more efficient, secure and accurate.
“Cost savings, increased efficiency, accuracy and security are all reasons the Hart ePollBook is a great choice for DuPage County,” said Robert T. Saar, Executive Director of the DuPage County Election Commission. “Elections continue to increase in complexity for voters, poll workers and administrators. Electronic poll books can be a powerful tool for accurately and consistently navigating the demands of the 21st century election environment.”
“In order to achieve their real potential, poll books must do more than distribute voter registration data,” continued Saar. “The genuine power of a poll book can only be achieved when the registration function is integrated with smart data – logic technology. Hart InterCivic grasped this concept at the outset and their ePollBook system delivers exactly what is necessary to ensure future success. We’re excited to be implementing the Hart ePollBook in DuPage and are looking forward to working with Hart as a valuable partner.”
“We are excited DuPage selected Hart and look forward to a great partnership with the County. We continue to see positive change when counties take advantage of Hart’s ePollBook technology; thus providing an overall increase of service to their voters,” said Hart InterCivic CEO, Phillip Braithwaite.
The Hart ePollBook, powered by Scytl election management software, features an easy-to-use touchscreen netbook that synchronizes voter registration data in real-time and increases the efficiency of voter check-in and verification processes at the polling location. The ePollBook will be deployed for use by DuPage County in 2015.
Key Features of Hart’s ePollBook offering:
1. Enables anywhere voting – Early Voting, Vote Centers, Election Day
2. Provides an easy-to-read screen that’s intuitive for poll workers
3. Intelligently guides poll workers through the check-in process to achieve consistent qualification of each voter
