Hart Verity Scanner

Polling Place Voting Machines Information

Delaware County Council at its Oct. 23, 2019,  meeting, voted unanimously to spend $6 million to purchase Hart Verity 2.3.4 voting machines. LWV supported this choice. 

The Hart Verity machine meets Pennsylvania certification standards because it allows: 

  • hand-marked, paper ballots that are readable by voters with no bar codes.
  • ballots that can be read and counted by an optical scanner and recounted by hand as needed.
  • accessibility for handicapped individuals to use a touch screen machine that provides a printed ballot that confirms their choices without a bar code and is read by an optical scanner.
  • the ability to continue voting in a power outage with a secure box into which voters can manually slide their ballots.
  • maximum security to protect our votes from hacking or other tampering.
  • simple mechanisms to open and close the machines as well as operate machine that will encourage people to work at the polls.
