flag-animated VOTING MACHINES


M100 Optical Scan Tabulator


Marking the Ballot:
After you have been issued a ballot, mark your ballot using the pens provided in the voting booth.  COMPLETELY fill in the oval beside the candidate or issue of your choice.  (the machine WILL NOT read an X or check mark)  Only mark the number of choices allowed for each contest.  To write in a candidate, fill in the oval beside "write-in" and write the name of your choice.  Review your selections; if you need to make changes, please ask a precinct official for a new ballot.

Casting your ballot:
Once your ballot is complete, take it to the M100 Tabulator and feed it into the machine.  If the machine has a problem with your ballot it will beep and a precinct worker will assist you at that time.


If the ballot is accepted into the Tabulator then your ballot has been cast.
