Voting Equipment

The DS200 Optical Scan Unit by ES&S Voting Systems will be used in all Prince George County elections starting this Nov. 7, 2017. The DS200 is an optical scan voting system with an express vote attachment which meets all of the disability voting requirements. It works very much like optical scan equipment that has been used in Prince George County over the last 18 years. The ballots are similar to the ones previously used. Voting will be conducted in the same way and the voter should notice very little difference in the process.

More information on the new equipment will be available in the Registrar’s Office.
