Automated Ballot Remaking


eLect’s Transcriber records ballot selections in a patent-pending 2D barcode that is printed on the ballot alongside the marked choices. Remote voters print their ballot on ordinary paper and return it to the appropriate jurisdiction, where it is scanned on a ballot printer and reprinted on official ballot stock for tabulation. This guarantees the ballot can be quickly, properly, and officially counted. This more cost-effective, efficient solution replaces the traditional manual transcribing of ballots, which has consistently proven to be a labor-intensive, error-prone, and time-consuming process.
