Public Invited to Test Voting Machine Options, Provide Feedback to Board of Elections

The Tompkins County Board of Elections is inviting interested members of the public to test several voting machine options being considered by the Board for use in future elections. Three New York State certified vendors are offering public sessions on the following dates:

July 11, 2:00p.m. – 4:00p.m. Clear Ballot

July 13, 2:00p.m. – 4:00p.m. Hart Intercivic

July 26, 2:00p.m. – 4:00p.m. Dominion Voting Systems

All sessions will be held in the Tompkins County Legislature Chambers, 121 East Court St., Ithaca, on the second floor. Use the Dewitt Park entrance.

Attending members of the public will have the opportunity to submit sample ballots and test how each machine works for voters. Board of Elections staff will be present to accept feedback on which machines are preferable to attendees. The selected vendor will provide machines for elections starting in 2024. All vendors provide paper ballots and are ADA compliant.
