Voters Invited to Try New Elections Voting System at Open Houses

Voters Invited to Try New Elections Voting System at Open Houses
When Williamson County voters head to the polls this fall, they will be using new voting equipment that provides a paper audit trail. The new system by Election Systems and Software (ES&S) is a two-step process that allows voters to make selections on an electronic marking device, then provides a printed ballot voters will scan into an electronic tabulator.

To help voters become acquainted with the new system, the Elections Department is hosting open houses where voters can stop by and use the new system to cast votes for a fictional election in the Land of Oz. Voters also can stop by the Elections Department during Voter Drop-In Hours to use the equipment.
Open houses are scheduled from August 7 to 19 as follows:
• Wednesday, August 7, at Cowan Creek Amenity Center, 1433 Cool Spring Way, Georgetown from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
• Monday, August 12, at J.B. and Hallie Jester Williamson County Annex, 1801 E. Old Settlers, Round Rock from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
• Tuesday, August 13, at Cedar Park Library, 550 Discovery Boulevard, Cedar Park from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
• Thursday, August 15, at Hutto Public Library, 500 W Live Oak Street, Hutto from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
