A New ePollBook System


On Friday, April 27, 2018, Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a new ePollBook system for Travis County. This new project is the latest in a series of efforts by the County Clerk and her staff, and investments being made by Travis County government, to upgrade the various systems that are part of the election process. Responses to the RFP are due by 2:00 PM on May 21, 2018, and we expect the new system to be available for use in the May 2019 election.

An ePollBook the first point of contact a voter makes at the poll. It is used by the poll worker to check a voter in ensure that voter's eligibility. The RFP released today will allow Travis County to identify and implement the latest technology available to further enhance the security of the voting process. "ePollBook systems are critical to our ability to manage the very successful Vote Center concept that we use in Travis County." said DeBeauvoir, "Voters can vote at any polling place in the County because of the ePollBook – we look forward to implementing the next generation of this technology to make the voter?s experience even better."

Travis County currently uses an ePollBook system developed by Hamer Enterprises. It was acquired in 2002.
