Come May’s Charlottesville City Council election, we’ll be testing out a new voting technology. The election will be a test case for the use of Hart InterCivic‘s eSlate Electronic Voting System. It’s sort of like an overgrown Palm Pilot, only a little more unusual looking. The highly-portaable devices are entirely ADA-compliant, store and tabulate votes electronically, and are extremely simple to use. They’re available for test use at the Registrar’s Office in the City Hall Annex. The story is from Jake Mooney’s piece in today’s Progress.
