eSlates approved for surplussing
Following Yakima County's decision last week to move to an
all-mail voting system, Tuesday morning of this week Yakima County
commissioners approved the surplussing of more than 200 pieces of equipment
typically used by poll voters.
Yakima County Auditor Corky Mattingly said following
yesterday's vote by the commissioners, the county is surplussing 215 pieces of
equipment that include eSlate voting machines and the judges booth controllers
that go with them.
The equipment is being sent back to Hart, the manufacturer
of the eSlate system, where they will be sold on consignment.
According to Mattingly, Hart has estimated that the county
will receive about $1,000 for each unit. The money will then be used to
purchase additional equipment needed to prepare the county for its first
all-mail election in November.
