We have 6 in Bennington, wouldn't have it any other way.
 
With regard to the programming expense, keep in mind the cost of election
workers payroll at the end of the night counting ballots is significantly
reduced.  I realize some of you are lucky enough to have people volunteer as
poll workers but in our case, the savings in payroll offsets the programming
expense quite a bit.

We have 1400 people on our voter checklist.  We also have one Accuvote
tabulator that is used at our elections.  I love it, my workers like it, and
the BCA really loves it!!!!  It makes counting a breeze and is truly
accurate.  

 

It does cost to program the ballots for each election (Town Meeting ballot
cost us $1,000 to program) but it is worth it.  There is also an annual
maintenance agreement with LHS that costs about $175.

Hi All

 

I am looking for feedback from any one who uses the vote tabulator machine.
I am going before my Select Board on Thursday night to discuss it one last
time and want to hear from anyone that loves or hates their machine.
Hardwick has a voter checklist of approximately 2300. I really appreciate
any information you can pass along.

 

Thank you, 

Alberta Miller

Town Clerk, Hardwick
