Chesapeake has a new voting system!
Chesapeake tranistioned to the new Hart Intercivic Voting System and will begin using this system for the November 8, 2011 General Election.
Most voters will use the eScan, a precinct-based, digital ballot-imaging voting terminal. It takes just a second for eScan to read both sides of a paper ballot in one pass, and the voter knows in less than 3 seconds if his ballot is accepted or rejected.
Accurate, secure and easy to operate, the eScan uses advanced digital technology. Recorded ballots drop automatically into a locked ballot box incorporated into the eScan to create a secure, verifiable paper record of the votes cast.
Ballots on Election Day will look similar to our Sample Ballots.
Voters with Disabilities will use the eSlate, a voting machine which has a set of distinctly shaped control buttons and the SELECT Wheel are easy for voters to understand and use, and never need calibration. Voters are presented with a summary of their votes before they can activate the "Cast Ballot" button, allowing for second chance vote changes as required by the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002.
