ExpressPoll® Electronic Pollbook

The future of electronic pollbook technology fits in your hands

The ExpressPoll system gives election poll workers a simple-to-operate voter check-in device that slashes waiting time for voters, increases the accuracy of voters’ personal information, and improves the Election Day experience for voters and poll workers alike. Our popular electronic pollbook software, EZRoster, runs on affordable touch-screen tablets. This provides an intuitive, easy-to-understand user interface similar to the digital devices used every day. The ExpressPoll also can be integrated with multiple tabulation devices to provide a complete voter check-in solution and ensure the correct ballot style is issued.

Key Features

With the ExpressPoll integrated stand, the ExpressPoll tablet, thermal printer, magnetic stripe reader and 2D barcode scanner are all directly connected without the use of Bluetooth or wireless technology, giving the system the highest level of overall security, reliability and performance.

Another advantage of the ExpressPoll integrated stand is that it is fully configured when removed from the carrying case. There are no stands to assemble, tablets to mount or printers to pair. The poll worker just has to lift the ExpressPoll tablet and stand out of the storage case as one unit, no need to insert the tablet into the stand, or connect any peripherals, making it the easiest system for poll workers to set up and operate, as the process can be completed in seconds without assistance.

The integrated stand features:
 

20-hour tablet and peripherals battery backup

  • Eliminates the need to plug the ExpressPoll into AC power for the entire Election Day.
     

Thermal printer

  • Holds up to a 300-foot roll of thermal paper enough to support an entire Election Day
  • Extremely easy to load paper – simply drop the roll into place and close the printer compartment lid. No paper threading necessary

Ergonomic configurability for voter signature capture and poll worker use

Accessible USB Ports for peripheral expansion (e.g., keyboard, ExpressVote Activation Card Printer, system maintenance)

 

Redundant Data Storage

The ExpressPoll tablet offers “redundant” internal data storage, ensuring that voter validation information can be retrieved after each election. Data is stored in solid-state internal memory and on a microSD card installed in the tablet. If one of these storage areas experience any issues, data can easily be retrieved from the other data storage location.

Faster Voter History Uploads

After every election, voter history is uploaded directly from the ExpressPoll unit, dramatically reducing upload times and enabling faster updates to the voter registration system.
