Report to the Alexandria Board of Elections

Thad E. Hall

During the 2002 general election, the Alexandria Board of Elections tested the Hart Intercivic eSlate voting system as a first step in determining how well an electronic voting system would work in the City of Alexandria. There are three key findings from the evaluation of this system.

  1. Alexandria voters are comfortable and satisfied with the current voting system that they have. Voters like the optical scan system and use it quite adeptly.
  2. When voters at the Lee Center precinct were exposed to the Hart Intercivic voting system for the first time, they generally had a high level of satisfaction with the system.
  3. There is a certain level of non-voting that occurs in Alexandria that will likely occur regardless of the type of voting system the City adopts.
