Medina County Voting Equipment

The Medina County Board of Elections uses Election Systems & Software’s (ES&S) ExpressVote Universal Voting System.

“As a marker, the ExpressVote handles the entire marking process, eliminating marginal marks and the need for voter mark interpretation. Voters utilize the touch screen to mark their vote selections, receiving a verifiable paper vote record upon completion.” The top left picture is the ExpressVote Ballot Marking Device in a booth.

“The DS200 is a precinct-based scanner and vote tabulator equipped with the latest in ES&S’ patented technology. Fully certified and compliant with EAC guidelines, the DS200 enhances the voting experience for voters and election officials alike.” The DS200 is the bottom left picture.

“L&A” (Logic and Accuracy) is a testing process that is completed on each unit prior to every election. Functionality as well as additional features of the unit are tested, such as: vote selection/deselection, date and time, calibration, audio and ADA features, the printing of ballot activation cards and summary reports. L&A is scheduled approximately 30 days before each Election and may be observed by the public.

L&A test is performed solely by Medina County Board of Elections employees. Each election is programmed, reviewed and tested by Medina County Board of Elections employees.
