Resolution to enter into a contract with Election Systems and Software (ES&S) of Omaha, Nebraska, in an amount of $103,336 to upgrade 117 ExpressVote ballot marking devices

 

Staff Summary

                     A system upgrade is needed for Lake County to comply with State Board of Elections guidelines.

                     Due to the state certification configurations, the ExpressVotes ballot marking devices currently in the County’s inventory will not operate with the upgrade. ES&S has offered to replace Generation One ExpressVote ballot marking devices with Generation Two, at no additional cost.

                     The cost to the county is for modem replacement and upgrades to the hardened workstations. This includes technical services to come onsite for upgrades, installation, and testing.

                     Current modems are third generation (3G), which will no longer be supported by the end of 2019. New modems will be fourth generation (4G).
