Equipment Tips

Now let’s go over some equipment tips to keep election day running smoothly.

  • Remember that you can call Technical Support for help.
  • If any equipment issues arise during the day, document them in your Chief’s Notes.
  • Tape all cords down & out of the way of voters walking.
  • If you are having issues scanning IDs with the Poll Pad, try to adjust the ID tray, or create a shadow with your hand or a piece of paper to reduce glare.
  • If your ExpressVote has no sound, first check that the volume is turned up.
  • Always use a surge protector between the wall outlet and your DS200 (and other voting equipment).
