MontCoPA New Voting System Demonstrations

Important Notice

The Montgomery County Commissioners have approved a contract with Dominion Voting Systems to provide a modern voter-marked paper balloting system with a verifiable paper trail that can be audited to ensure votes are being counted accurately.

The new system will replace the current electronic push-button voting machines the county purchased in 1996 which were nearing the end of their useful life. The County plans to have the new system in place for the May 2019 primary election.

In most cases, voters will use a pen to fill out a ballot and have an opportunity to check it for accuracy before submitting it to scanner that tabulate the votes and keep the ballot in a secure container for audits or recounts.

Each polling place will also have an ADA touchscreen machine that can be used to select candidates. When the voter is done filling out the ballot, the touchscreen machine will print out a paper ballot that the voter can verify before submitting it for tabulation.
