The Fairfax County Elections Department has partnered with national elections product and service provider Printelect, to utilize its Mobile Voting Precinct (MVP) for Tuesday, August 23rd‘s primary election. This is the first-ever use of the MVP in an election and part of a growing trend of unique voting precinct solutions. The unit will be stationed at the Vienna Precinct in Alexandria, Virginia all day on Tuesday.
This unrivaled 38-foot vehicle was incepted to provide portable capabilities that will enable local election officials to bring the vote to the people in communities across the country, and help solve some of the crucial issues that arise in election jurisdictions across the country.
The MVP features 15 voting stations, a spacious two-person registration desk, efficient traffic-flow design and ballot box placement, and full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Such a vehicle has never before been offered for use in the elections industry.
“We have researched and developed the MVP to be an Election Day problem-solver for our customers,” said Owen D. Andrews, President/CEO of Printelect. “Its versatility and mobility can help election officials throughout the nation to alleviate lines, improve voter education efforts increase voter registration capabilities, and solve many of the problems that occur before, during and after polling place hours.”
