Fulton County BOC approves funding to improve efficiency of the elections process | News
FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- At the Aug. 5 board meeting, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners (BOC) approved the purchase of an election/asset management system and Poll Worker on-line training software system recommended by the county’s Department of Registration and Elections. Both systems will align the department to continue resolving issues that arose during the general election and general election runoff of 2008 as well as the primary and general elections of 2012.
“The approval to implement these two systems should improve our department’s ability to conduct elections more efficiently,” states Rick Barron, Director of the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections. “The 2016 Election Year is fast approaching and having these two systems in place will enable us to be better prepared for the expected increase in turn-out due to it being a Presidential Election year.”
The department will enter an agreement with Easy Vote Solutions, LLC (Woodstock, GA) for an Election/Asset Management System in the amount of $153,000 that will provide online applications on a single platform for campaign finance reporting, poll book, project and task management and inventory management capabilities.
The department will also purchase a Poll Worker Online Training System in the amount of $59,500.00 from SOE Software d/b/a Scytl (Tampa, FL) for a Poll Worker on-line training system software to enhance classroom training for seasonal and temporary employees hired to work the polls.
