The ES&S election system from ES&S is a voting system with a intigrated ballot marking device as part of the Expressvote XL machine, a hybrid DRE/optical scan voting system with native ballot marking functionality that allows a voter with disabilities to privately and independently vote on a paper ballot. The default touch screen is available to any voter. 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 other compatible personal interface devices may also be used by voters with limited hand dexterity.  

The machine then prints out a summary card for voter review, with printed text for each candidate chosen, at which point the voter can confirm that their choices have been recorded correctly, and then cast their printed paper summary card for tabulation or eject the ballot to be inserted into a separate tabulator depending on the set up.   

The DS300 ballot scanner is a portable electronic voting system that uses an optical scanner to read cards printed by the expressvote XL 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 DS300 also notifies you of voting errors. You will be able to then correct these errors to ensure that Your Vote Counts.
