The OpenElect FreedomVote Scan (FVS)
is our new precinct-count digital scan voting device.
Designed for Optimum Security and Usability
To meet today’s election needs, the OpenElect FreedomVote Scan (FVS) is able to quickly and accurately accept, validate and tabulate ballots whether it is for an Absentee, Early Voting or Election Day session. The FVS’s scanning process has a guided paper path and double-feed detection, which ensures that full page and ADA ballots are entered straight into the scanner, preventing double-feed errors. It can scan and validate full-page, multiple page, two-sided ballots as well as ballots produced on the OpenElect FreedomVote Tablet (FVT) system. It supports write-in votes and saves the scanned ballot images as one of a variety of close reports.
Designed for Portability
Your poll workers will find setting up the FVS is quick and simple. The FVS’s case houses all of the unit’s hardware components, including an internal back-up battery pack that will power the system for up to two hours in the event of a power failure. The FVS is easily mounted on it’s specially designed ballot box for delivery to the voting location. The ballot box is constructed to exceed the industry’s security requirements and can be collapsed down to a small footprint to save on warehouse storage space.
