AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hart InterCivic, a leading national provider of election voting systems, management products and services, announced today that Yankton County, South Dakota, will use Hart’s ePollBook as part of the Secretary of State’s Vote Center Support Initiative.
“I was pleased with the results from the June 2012 Primary Election,” said Secretary of State Jason Gant. “Hart and the ePollBook delivered on all of the South Dakota Vote Center Support initiatives.”
In the June Primary Election, three counties in South Dakota experienced improved accuracy, convenience, and cost savings using Hart’s ePollBook at vote centers. This success was a deciding factor in expanding the program to a larger jurisdiction in November for Yankton County. The Hart Team added a state specific feature to the ePollBook that provides ballot inventory tracking to ensure the correct ballot styles and quantities are available throughout Election Day.
“The ePollBook continues to perform well in all environments,” said Hart President Derek Hutson. “The broad acceptance with poll workers, voters, and election administrators is a testament to Hart’s user-friendly product development.”
