|Many of the documents on this page are in PDF format.
Former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land announced on August 4, 2003 that
arrangements would be made to convert all jurisdictions that still employed
punch card ballots, paper ballots and mechanical lever machines to
updated optical scan voting systems. The direct recording electronic (DRE)
voting equipment in use in the State would also be replaced with optical scan
voting equipment under the program. The announcement came after considerable
evaluation by the members of the State Plan Advisory Committee. The State paid
for the equipment through its share of HAVA funds.
As a first step toward the replacement of the voting equipment, the Department
of State released an "Invitation to Bid" (ITB) on October 1, 2003 to
qualify vendors for the conversion project.
