New Election Equipment

The City of Merrill chooses new accurate, secure, accessible voting machines.  Voters in the City of Merrill can soon cast their ballots by using a new secure paper-based voting system.

The ExpressVote was purchased to replace obsolete ADA voting equipment, however ANYONE can use the ExpressVote to vote.

The ExpressVote is a machine that lets you make your choices on a touchscreen or with a keypad before printing your selections on a ballot.  This means you can review the candidates you select and correct any mistakes before your selections are printed.

The ExpressVote can:

    • Read a voter their ballot (with the use of headphones)
    • Make text bigger
    • Change the contrast of the screen
    • Warn a voter if they over-vote or skip a contest
