The iVotronic touch-screen voting machine has been proven through use in thousands of elections throughout the State of South Carolina and worldwide. It was designed and built to the highest security standards. The iVotronic's closed system and unique personal electronic ballot are not open to either wireless or wire-based systems. This means the machine is not connected to any type of network at anytime. The system has three independent memory chips that store ballot data. The data in each memory location must match exactly in order to allow access to a cast ballot. This ensures no vote is cast in error, lost, or is in anyway altered. The iVotronic allows for a printed and documented record of precinct-level election activity to verify results.
