County Clerk/Election Commissioner, Rebecca Rossell, along with Angie Frison of Election Systems and Software, briefed the County Board about the Balotar hardware & software package for elections.


Rossell told board members that herself and her Deputy, Terry Heessel, had visited Lancaster County in April and May of 2021 during the City Election.  The scope of these visits was to view procedures used in Lancaster County in the election process including the use of the Balotar system.  The goal of the purchase of the Balotar system would to be increase efficiency and be more cost effective.  The Balotar system would be used primarily for early voting, but could be used to print other ballots as needed.  The local printer would still print the ballots for the polling sites.


Frison explained that the Balotar system is not linked to the internet or a network.  The data to print the ballots is imported into the system on a thumb drive.  Ballots would be voted and processed as normal.


Motion by Bruns, seconded by Woodruff to approve the purchase of Balotar (hardware and software) in the amount of $18,130 out of the CARE funds for the Lincoln County Clerk/Election Commissioner.  Upon roll call vote Hewgley, Weems, Henry, Bruns and Woodruff voted “aye”.  Nays, none.
