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.
