Overview

The Democracy Suite election system from Dominion Voting Systems is a voting system with dedicated ballot marking devices (BMD), standalone ballot scanners, as well as ballot scanners with integrated BMD capabilities. 

The Dominion ICP-BMD is a full dual functionality machine that allows a voter with disabilities to privately and independently vote on a paper ballot. Audio and tactile interfaces allow voters with sight challenges to complete their ballot. Voters can listen to the selections over headphones or view an LCD screen with an image of their ballot that can be adjusted for size and contrast. A "Sip-N-Puff", or paddle device may also be used by voters with limited hand dexterity. On the opposite side of the machine is the ballot scanner where voters can cast their ballot. It uses an optical scanner to read marked paper ballots and tally the results. This system allows for paper ballots to be immediately tabulated at your polling site. 

Similarly, the Dominion ImageCast Evolution (ICE) is a full dual functionality machine that allows a voter with disabilities to privately and independently vote on a paper ballot. Audio and tactile interfaces allow voters with sight challenges to complete their ballot. Voters can listen to the selections over headphones or view an LCD screen with an image of their ballot that can be adjusted for size and contrast. A "Sip-N-Puff", or paddle device may also be used by voters with limited hand dexterity. Unlike the ICP-BMD, the ICE houses both the BMD as well as the optical scanner for the ballots at the front of the machine in a single integrated unit.  

The Dominion ImageCast X (ICX) is a stand-alone Ballot marking device that allows a voter with disabilities to privately and independently vote on a paper ballot. Audio and tactile interfaces allow voters with sight challenges to complete their ballot. Voters can listen to the selections over headphones or view an LCD screen with an image of their ballot that can be adjusted for size and contrast. A "Sip-N-Puff", or paddle device may also be used by voters with limited hand dexterity. In New York State, the ICX is only certified as a ballot marking device and must be initiated by a poll worker. The ICX prints a full-face ballot identical to any other ballot cast in the election. 

Any voter may use and of the BMD devices present at their poll site to vote, not just voters with a disability or in need of language assistance. Many individuals have disabilities that are not readily apparent and cannot be easily seen. Poll workers should not assume that a voter will or will not want to use the BMD, ask a voter what their disability is, or otherwise decide that the voter should or should not use the BMD. The decision to use the BMD is up to the voter. Simply inform the election inspector, and they will initiate your voting session. 

The Imagecast Precinct (ICP) and Imagecast Precinct 2 (ICP2) systems are portable electronic voting systems that use an optical scanner to read marked paper ballots and tally the results. This system allows for paper ballots to be immediately tabulated at your polling site. As the system is not network capable, results are then taken by secure courier to the Board of Elections, where they can be read in to the central system. The ICP and ICP2 also notify you of voting errors. You will then be able to correct these errors to ensure that Your Vote Counts.
