ImageCast Evolution System (ICE)
ImageCast Evolution or ICE units are a state certified optical scan voting system manufactured by Dominion Voting Systems.
This system streamlines the voting process, while providing a simple, fast and secure method of conducting an election.
ICE units are the only all-in-one optical scan tabulator and ballot marking devices which offer the ability for simultaneous standard and accessible voting sessions.
The ICE tabulator provides the voter an easy, user friendly method of casting his or her ballot.
At the polls, the voter receives a paper ballot in a secrecy sleeve.
Using a felt tip marker provided at the voting booth, the voter records their vote by filling in the oval next to their choices.
Once the voter has cast their ballot, the ICE unit will either accept the cast vote with a "ding" sound from the machine,
or will reject the ballot while displaying a large error message on the screen with appropriate action that needs to be taken.
ICE allows all voters to vote their ballot privately and independently. By using an external monitor and ADA Keypad, persons who are blind or visually impaired are allowed
to vote without the assistance of others while seamlessly depositing all ballots in the same ballot box.
