Transylvania County Chooses Printelect & ES&S As Vendor Partner
BREVARD, NC. – June 3, 2019 – Printelect and its vendor partner, Election Systems & Software (ES&S) announce the decision of Transylvania County, North Carolina to extend its partnership with the companies. Transylvania County includes voters in the city of Brevard, the town of Rosman as well as other unincorporated townships. Transylvania County’s approximately 25,000 registered voters will continue to cast their ballots on ES&S federally-certified voting systems.
The county made its selection after a comprehensive assessment of their options. Through their assessment, county election officials determined that ES&S provides a voting solution that is easy for both poll workers and election officials to navigate and manage.
The DS200® precinct scanner and tabulator combines the best attributes of a paper-based ballot system with the flexibility and efficiency of the latest digital-image technology – taking traditional optical-scan ballot vote tabulation to a new level.
“We are pleased with our Board’s decision to move forward with the DS200.” said Jeff Storey, director of the Transylvania County Board of Elections. “The voting equipment was successfully tested in last year’s May primary and received positive feedback from both precinct workers and voters. We have also experienced great support from Printelect and ES&S throughout the years with our iVotronic and M100 voting machines. We look forward to continuing to provide fair and accurate election services for the voters of Transylvania County .”
The DS200® precinct scanner and tabulator includes physical security features to secure sensitive components and election files. The DS200 operating system controls, limits and detects unauthorized access to all critical data, and includes safeguards that help protect sensitive data and verify authenticity.
Transylvania County continues its partnership with the companies following a history of quality service and support. With Printelect service offices throughout North Carolina, the proximity to local, skilled and certified technicians has helped extend the useful life of the existing equipment to more than 12 years. The maintenance and field service capabilities, as well as a collaborative working relationship with Transylvania County personnel, made the Printelect and ES&S partnership the right choice for the county.
“We are honored to work with Transylvania County,” said Mac Beeson, ES&S regional vice president of Sales. “Transylvania County shares our vision of maintaining voter confidence and enhancing the voting experience. We look forward to continuing a successful long-term partnership.”
“We take immense pride in the quality of our products and services,” said Owen Andrews. “We couldn’t be more pleased that Transylvania County has chosen to continue working with us.”
