Registrars Daniels & Slopak, with
Regional Election Monitor Merolla-Martin
simulate setup of IVS equipment for
November 2017 election.

One of the most interesting changes in the equipment used for
casting ballots is the new and improved IVS system.
The system is designed to help hearing-impaired and
vision-impaired voters (along with anyone who would like to use it)
to cast their ballots. The system consists of a
laser printer (prints a ballot that can be read in our tabulators),
a Dell laptop computer, headphones and a keypad.
Before each election, the systems (there are 6 - one for each precinct)
must be set up and tested. The photo shows a simulation of the
setup and testing for the IVS machines.
