Everyone Counts Brings State of the Art Elections to Nevada County, CA with eLect® Electronic Poll Book

Ten Nevada County Polling Places to check-in voters using Everyone Counts’ Electronic Poll Book on June 3rd Primary Election

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nevada County, CA Everyone Counts is teaming with Nevada County, CA for an electronic poll book pilot for the June 3rd primary election.

The eLect® Electronic Poll Book, Everyone Counts’ software-based solution which replaces paper poll books, is easy for volunteer poll workers to understand and use. Voter check-in and ballot distribution occur quickly and accurately, resulting in faster turnaround times for voters. Data is provided electronically, reducing both the need for extra workers and the chance of human error. The reduced labor and processing costs are estimated to provide Nevada County with a cost savings of $40,000 per election, according to Gregory Diaz, Nevada County’s Clerk Recorder-Registrar of Voters.

Everyone Counts worked closely with Nevada County to understand the County’s goals and requirements for this pilot. eLect Poll Book’s Software as a Service (SaaS) model allows for configuration to ensure full compliance with California Election Code and to match key existing process points that Nevada County election officials have used for years to ensure successful elections. The software provides flexibility to accommodate changes in future election requirements, which can be implemented with speed and accuracy. For example, when California implements VoteCal—the State’s centralized database of voter registration information to be introduced in 2016—Nevada County can simply reconfigure their electronic poll book instead of procuring a replacement solution.

Unique to eLect® Electronic Poll Book is the ability to manage multi-precinct locations from a single poll book. Polling locations participating in June 3rd’s electronic poll book pilot include Alta Sierra, Bethel Church, Calvary Bible Church, Lake Wildwood Community Center, Penn Valley Firehouse, Northwoods Clubhouse, Sierra Mt. Middle School, Seaman’s Lodge, and GV Vets.
