Electronic Poll Book
The future of electronic poll book technology fits in your two hands.
With the ExpressPoll® system from ES&S, election poll workers have a simple-to-operate voter check-in device that slashes waiting time for voters, increases the accuracy of voters’ personal information, and improves the Election Day experience for voters and poll workers alike.
ExpressPoll software runs on low-cost Lenovo® digital tablets powered by the Android® operating system, giving poll workers an easy-to-understand user interface that’s similar to the smartphones and tablet computers they use in their everyday lives.
Gone are the days of multiple peripheral devices needed to check in voters. Instead, devices such as a signature pad and barcode reader are built right in to each tablet computer, make the devices easy to use and handle.
The ExpressPoll can be mixed with both new and existing technologies to provide a complete low-cost voter check-in solution. There’s no need to invest in an all-new voting system when you upgrade your poll book technology to the ExpressPoll system.
Current ExpressPoll-5000 users will see that ES&S’ new tablet-based system retains all of the features and functionality to which you are accustomed. Data files are the same as before, allowing for one data conversion activity even with a mix of new and existing technologies. And just like ExpressPoll-5000, our new ExpressPoll system will communicate seamlessly with CentralPoint™ for poll management and BridgePoint™ for data conversion.
The ExpressPoll uses commercially-available Lenovo tablets running the powerful and proven Android operating system.
Poll workers scan barcodes with the tablet’s built-in camera and capture voters’ signatures with the touch screen. This makes the device easy to handle and avoids the cost of purchasing external peripheral devices.
The ExpressPoll solution communicates with other tablets in a precinct using secure, peer-to-peer wireless networking, eliminating the need for cables as well as hubs or switches.
The receipt-style printer, external keyboard, and other peripherals connect to the ExpressPoll system through Bluetooth® technology, eliminating cumbersome wires connecting to the tablet.
Small and Lightweight
Unlike laptop computers and older tablet technology, the ExpressPoll tablets are compact and light. Poll workers do not need special equipment to carry the poll books to polling locations.
