Electronic Universal Voting System
ES&S has combined our extensive industry knowledge with customer feedback to create the ExpressTouch — an Electronic Universal Voting System that provides an enhanced touch screen voting experience within a portable tablet.
The 15-inch touch screen and Electionware® full-featured ballot layout manager enable the ExpressTouch to display many contests and candidates in a compact profile.With 15” of screen surface, the ExpressTouch allows more contests and candidates to be displayed while the actual tablet maintains a small, compact profile. This is accomplished through its election management system, Electionware®, which has a full-featured ballot image layout manager, allowing for screen maximization.
The internal backup battery lasts up to 8 hours, and charges any time the unit is docked in a powered voting booth or directly plugged into a standard outlet. It exceeds the VVSG 1.0 reliability and durability standards.
The ExpressTouch not only encrypts all election data and totals, but it provides a real-time audit trail for all events, including their time and date stamps, saved to the USB flash drive.
The operating software provides security access controls to limit or detect access to critical system components, guarding against system integrity loss and availability. This maintains confidentiality and provides accountability for each unit. Each units’ hardware was designed to protect against tampering during system maintenance, or interventions in system operations, and in response to system failure. In addition, system access during equipment preparation, testing and operation is limited by physical locks, access codes and smart cards.
Light and Portable
The ExpressTouch voting booth collapses into a self-contained transport and storage case for the tablet. All components, including the ExpressTouch tablet, report printer and portable booth, only weigh a combined 26 pounds.
