The voting process in Onondaga County just got easier. Early voting is the reason for the change to electronic poll books. Onondaga County plans to make this change for all early voting sites to be able to access the poll books in a timely and efficient manner.
Electronic poll books allow for a quick and easy way for residents to access their ballots and continue on to the voting process. Poll workers will also benefit from a more organized booking system.
The new technology will be on an IPad for voters to access their specific ballot, at any of the six early voting locations. This is the first year New York voters will be able to participate in early voting.
Dustin Czarny, the Onondaga County elections commissioner says, “…. It will prevent people from showing up to the wrong polling place, and not being able to cast their vote…. the full county database will be in every poll book.”
The new system will launch this fall and it will be at all of the voting locations in Onondaga County.
