Budgeting for Voting Systems Made Easy
As many election officials prepare to upgrade or purchase new voting systems for their jurisdictions, it is important to build an action plan. In order for this plan to have a solid foundation, the first step must be thoughtful budgeting. In the case of budgeting for a system purchase or upgrade, it’s important to look at more than just the amount you want to spend.
Assessing your needs, evaluating vendors, thinking about sustainability and yes, considering the amount of money you can spend are all important components to a budget plan. Completing this process early and with lots of thought will help you make the right decision for your jurisdiction; selecting a system that will be sustainable for years to come.
