Lawmakers Sign Off On New Delaware Voting System

/ WDAC

DOVER, DE (AP) – Delaware lawmakers have signed off on a comprehensive, $13 million upgrade of the state‘s voting system, including all new machines, an electronic poll book to speed up voter check-in, and a new election management system. The co-chairs of the Legislature’s Capital Budget Committee agreed to enter into a contract with Election Systems & Software LLC. ESS was one of seven vendors who submitted proposals, but the only one whose bid covered all of the state’s requirements, including a voter-verified paper ballot backup system. Delaware Election Commissioner Elaine Manlove says the new machines will start being used in school and municipal elections next year. The state is using $3 million in federal funds and $10 million in state funds for the new system.
