Press Release:

    The Beaufort County Board of Elections is starting the process to acquire a new voting equipment system. There are legal requirements that need to be met. The steps are as follows:

  1. Board of elections members must witness a demonstration of at least two voting systems and one must be a certified voting system not currently used in your county.
  2. The board of elections must then make a preliminary recommendation to the board of county commissioners as to which voting system should be acquired by the county.
  3. The county board of elections must test the proposed voting system in a simulated election.
  4. Seek State Board approval to replace the current voting system.
  5. County board of elections must make a final recommendation to the board of county commissioners. (The board of commissioners can decline to adopt or acquire any voting system recommended by the county board of elections, but it cannot adopt or acquire a voting system that has not been approved by the county board of elections. The public contracting and procurement statutes do not apply to the purchase of a certified voting system. Along with the final recommendation, the CBE must submit the proposed vendor contract to the State Board of Elections for review and approval.)

    Our public demonstrations (step 1) will start next week. The Hart Demo will be on April 21st at 5 pm. The ES&S Demo will be on April 27th at 5 pm.
