direct-recording electronic (DRE) voting equipment
Chesapeake began using a new Hart Intercivic Voting System before the November 2017 General and Special Elections.
Most voters will use Verity Scan, a precinct-based, digital ballot-imaging voting terminal. It takes a few seconds for the Scanner to read both sides of a paper ballot in one pass, and the voter knows in less than 5 seconds if his ballot is accepted or rejected.
Accurate, secure and easy to operate, the Verity Scan uses advanced digital technology. Recorded ballots drop automatically into a locked ballot box to create a secure, verifiable paper record of the votes cast.
Ballots on Election Day look similar to our Sample Ballots.
Voters with Disabilities can use the Verity Touch Writer, a voting machine which has a touch screen and set of distinctly shaped control buttons and SELECT Wheel easy for voters to understand and use. Voters will be presented with a summary of their votes before they can activate the "Print Ballot" button, allowing for second chance vote changes as required by the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002.
