All voters are checked in by election staff to ensure that they are a registered voter and that they are eligible to vote. The poll manager records their intention to vote, and acts as the safeguard to ensure that each person votes only once. A poll manager activates the voting machine with the proper ballot, which authorizes and allows one vote per voter. The poll manager monitors the voting process, and identifies and removes any voter who attempts to tamper with the voting equipment. It is a felony to tamper with the voting equipment or process, subject to a fine, imprisonment or both.
