New Technology at the Polls

Electronic Poll books are new this year for voters in Marion County.

Marion County Clerk Deputy Director Russell Hollis says polling locations are using the technology instead of traditional paper books to check people in. The electronic books are updated in real time.

Voters scan their ID’s into “poll pads”, which are iPads that use wireless technology to access the voter rolls.

“It’s what allows us to be a vote center county, which allows our voters to vote at any of our 273 vote centers," says Hollis.

Polls are open until 6 p.m.
