Optech Insight Tabulator
Every precinct in the City of East Lansing is equipped with an Optech Insight Tabulator for counting the votes on the ballots. The features of the optical scan system include:
Automatically counts the vote
Provides a paper trail for each ballot
Alerts voters to ballot marking errors and gives voters an opportunity to correct ballot marking errors
AutoMARK Voter Assist Terminal
The AutoMARK Voter Assist Terminal consists of a braille key pad, touch screen and personal sip/puff device port.
The AutoMARK Voter Assist Terminal is a ballot-marking device, but does not tabulate or record votes. It is only a ballot-marking device, designed to aid a voter in marking a traditional paper ballot. To use the AutoMARK, a voter inserts a ballot into the terminal. Once a voter has indicated all of his/her vote choices, the AutoMARK prints a marked ballot. The ballot is then inserted into the tabulator without violating the secrecy of the ballot.
