SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) – Polling places with more than one district in Onondaga County used I-pads to check people in for Tuesday’s election, instead of the normal pen and paper method.
On election day, a poll inspector at the St. Joseph’s Parish Center in Camillus said the I-pads are a lot more efficient.
Many voters liked the new technology. Voter Ryan Stinson said it made his experience a lot simpler.
“For me, it was not difficult at all.There was not any major malfunctions, I was in and out of the voting booth in five minutes.” Stinson, said.
Although Stinson said he liked the updated tech, he wonders about possible election interference.
“I do not know what program they used, if that could be corrupted or otherwise hacked or used maliciously especially in the coming 2020 election. I do not know how secure the system is.” Stinson, said.
Stinson hopes officials will make sure the I-pads are secure in future elections.
