Using an ES&S Tabulator
Once the voter has completed marking his ballot either with a pen from the voting booth or by a ballot marking device (voter assist terminal), the voter puts his ballot in a secrecy sleeve with the ballot stub exposed and proceeds to the precinct tabulator. The voter should hand the precinct worker the application to vote who will check to see that the number on the ballot stub matches the application to vote number. The precinct worker will tear off the ballot stub and instruct the voter to feed the ballot into the tabulator.
When you approach the tabulator, you will follow these steps:
1. Screen shows tabulator is ready
2. Insert ballot edge into slot
3. The screens show the ballot was successfully cast
Sometimes it is necessary to collect ballots in the auxiliary bin before tabulating. If needed, the precinct worker will instruct you to follow these steps:
1. Auxiliary bin slot
2. Insert ballot into slot
