Voting Equipment

In compliance with the Help America Vote Act of 2002, Calhoun County uses a blended voting system in each polling place consisting of an AccuVote-OS (Optical Scan) vote tabulator and an AccuVote-TSX (Touch Screen) vote tabulator for disabled voters. Both the AccuVote-OS and AccuVote-TSX units have undergone rigorous testing by independent testing laboratories and by the Florida Division of Elections and have been found to satisfy the state’s certification and acceptance requirements. Both types of tabulators provide a verifiable audit trail and audit log account for every activity performed during an election on the units.  For a demonstration of the AccuVote Optical Scan voting machine, click the link below:
