Many Registrars Use Electronic Voter Check-in

November 3, 2010

Many election registrars across Virginia replaced paper voter rolls with electronic voter check-in lists for the first time, and state officials say the process went relatively smoothly.

State Board of Elections officials said Tuesday that 85 Virginia localities rolled out the poll books for this election. About four local registrars reported minor early glitches. Some said their poll books were operating slowly, or that some poll workers were unaccustomed to how to operate them.

In one Nelson County polling place, election officials allowed about ten voters to cast provisional ballots because, at the time, there was no paper backup. In Montgomery County, poll workers checked voters' names using a paper list for a short time.
