How to Mark Your Ballot
Liberty County currently uses the Election Systems and Software M-100 precinct based tabulation system. This system reads mark sense paper ballots where a voter marks their choice of candidates by filling in the oval next to the candidate's name (See example at right).
In 2005, HAVA and state legislation mandated for each precinct, a voting unit that is assessible to the disabled community allowing the voter to vote unassisted. In December, 2011 our county entered into an agreement with ES&S to provide AutoMARK Voter Assist Terminals which would replace the iVotronic Voting System. The AutoMARK will bring our county into compliance with the provisions of 101.56075 F.S. that all voting must be on marksense paper ballot by 2016. The AutoMARK ballot-marking technology allows voters with disabilities and other special needs to mark a regular paper ballot privately and independently and have their ballot tabulated with all other ballots in the M-100. A voter can either touch the screen to make his or her selection, or use an audio device to have the ballot read to him or her and selections are then made by using a series of Braille-imbossed buttons. For more information see M-100 or AutoMARK.
