Response to live love laugh (Reply #3)

8. Our new equipment has a big suitcase built into the scanner base

that all the ballots drop into. When we close the polls, we zip it up and seal it then record the seal numbers, and it goes to the drop point with all the voting equipment, which is also sealed and recorded.

Votes are only stored on paper, and the machine used for casting the votes has no memory - each voter keys in an access code, makes his/her choices and prints the ballot. The access codes can only be used once. The next voter may be pulling up a completely different ballot since we have voting centers and you can vote anywhere in the county on election day

If we dared show up at the drop center with those seals broken or without the suitcase our asses would be in a sling.
