Cook County: A PollPower Case Study

In Cook County, Illinois with 1,673 precincts, VOTEC delivered a product as sophisticated as a hotel reservation system for a chain with 1,673 hotels. The precinct poll books need to have the voter’s reservation (registration) when they show up. They need to be able to check them in efficiently. They need to create a fully accurate and auditable record of the voter’s visit. They need to accept database changes in real time.

Extending our VoteSafe poll book system to this level has taken close to 4,000 programmer hours and a sizable team to test, document, and train to customer specifications.

Satisfied VOTEC Customers in Their Own Words:

Rick Barron

Williamson County (Texas) Election Administrator

“We switched from ES & S’s ePollbook to VOTEC’s VoteSafe because of the product’s quality, stability and ease of use. Our poll workers preferred VoteSafe to the ePollbook. In addition, it has seamless interaction with VEMACs, VOTEC’s voter registration product. We have been so happy with VEMACs, it was logical for us to expand our relationship with VOTEC’s.”

Jacquelyn F. Callanen

Bexar County (Texas) Elections Administrator

“As a VOTEC customer we were impressed by their unfailing dedication to make the Texas Caucuses a reality in 2012. We were given very little notice from the Federal Court as to the new timeline for elections after a very litigious redistricting. …we were holding an election, a runoff and another runoff! VOTEC stepped up to help us make this happen. We are pleased and proud to be a VOTEC customer.”

Tammy Brown

Director, Jackson County (Missouri) Election Commission

“I was impressed by VOTEC’s software product and encouraged to see how much easier it was to operate versus the palm pilots and the ease in which the staff and election assistants learned how to operate the laptops with VOTEC’s software. VOTEC along with John and his staff are a company I would highly recommend if you are looking for a quality product and quality people.”

John Oldham

Fort Bend County (Texas) Elections Administrator

“In December, we used the product both in Early Voting as well as on Election Day. Everything worked perfectly. Not only did we enjoy the added security of real time voter qualification, but all voter history was updated the day of the election. If any county is considering acquiring an electronic poll book, I would strongly encourage them to look at VoteSafe”
