Optical Scan Voting Machines for Tompkins County

Voting Machines for Tompkins County

New York State has completed the switchover to optical scan voting machines. To vote an optical scan ballot is very simple. After signing in you are given a paper ballot, which you then take to a privacy booth to fill out. You indicate your choices by filling in ovals. A ballot marking device will also be available to help voters with disabilities prepare a ballot in private. You then take the ballot and insert it in the optical scanner to cast your vote.
