The OpenElect Voting Optical Scan (OVO)
is a comprehensive and secure precinct-count
digital scan voting device.
Designed for Efficiency
To meet today’s election needs, the OpenElect Voting Optical Scan (OVO) is able to quickly and accurately accept, validate and tabulate ballots whether it is for an Absentee, Early Voting or Election Day session. The OVO’s scanning process provides robust security for your scanned election ballots and data. 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 that set up is quick and simple. The OVO’s compact case houses all of the unit’s hardware components and a single power source provides the unit with power. The OVO unit is easily mounted on a ballot box for delivery to the voting location. The ballot box is constructed to exceed the industry’s security requirements and can be nested to save on warehouse storage space.
The OVO makes the transition from any optical scan legacy system transparent and easy to accommodate.
