Ballot E-Box

The ES&S DS200 precinct scanner and tabulator uses precise ballot sensors to scan both sides of a ballot, simultaneously, with a high-resolution image scanner. A resulting ballot image can be stored on a variety of memory devices and reviewed, as needed, on a standard PC. The DS200 is designed with flexibility to support a wide range of ballot configurations and designs. It allows for more efficient accumulation and transmission of votes directly from the polling place.
