Voting Equipment Purchase Information

The Board of Supervisors has approved the ROV to begin researching and purchasing a new voting system. Public input to our decision will be very helpful. Below is a timetable of events for the ROV to be successful at purchasing a new system. We encourage all members of the public to attend the public demonstration portion by vendors to provide direct feedback to the ROV to assist with selecting a system.

Additionally we have provided some helpful links to those that may be interested in learning more about the requirements for a new system, info from the Secretary of State, and our presentation to the board on the voting system purchase. Please contact John Gardner at 707-784-3366, or by e-mail
jhgardner@solanocounty.com for any questions related to this process.
