Open Houses Scheduled to Try New Paper Audit Trail Voting System

When Williamson County voters head to the polls this fall, they will be using new voting equipment that provides a paper audit trail. The new system by Election Systems and Software (ES&S) is a two-step process that allows voters to make selections on an electronic marking device, then provides a printed ballot voters will scan into an electronic tabulator. To help voters become acquainted with the new system, the Elections Department is hosting open houses August 7 to 19 where voters can stop by and use the new system to cast votes for a fictional election in the Land of Oz. Voters also can stop by the Elections Department during Voter Drop-In Hours August 20 to 23 to use the equipment. For more in-depth information on the new voting equipment, visit  www.wilco.org/wilcovotes and www.wilco.org/wilcovota
