Our Election Equipment

Whichever voting method you choose, we support it with reliable, tested, state-of-the-art equipment. 

Our BlueCrest Relia-Vote inserter and sorter allows us to meet the huge demand for Vote By Mail ballots quickly and cost-effectively from our Elections Service Center.


Electronic Poll Books powered by Tenex Software Solutions allow for quick and efficient voter check-in at all Early Voting sites and Election Day polling places. These tablets take the place of paper registers.
Voters who vote in-person in Hillsborough County cast their ballots using Election Systems & Software (ES&S) DS200 optical scan voting equipment. Ballots are digitally scanned and tabulated, and the paper ballot is saved in the box below the scanner. Vote By Mail ballots are scanned on ES&S high-speed DS850 scanners. Our scanners were first used in 2016, and are carefully maintained and tested before each election. Supervisors of Elections in Florida can only use voting systems that have been certified by the State and determined to meet the standards set out in Florida law and rule. You can find out more about State-approved voting systems here.
ExpressVote Ballot Marking Devices are in every Early Voting site and Election Day polling place, providing disabled voters with privacy and independence while voting.
