E-Poll Books See Minor Problems

April 8, 2014, 10:12 PM by Sammi Bjelland

E-Poll Books See Minor Problems

E-poll books have been present in Sioux Falls for about three years, but the voting technology had its issues during the city election Tuesday.

The electronic voting systems allow residents to vote from any location. Former Minnehaha County auditor Sue Roust was superintendent of the 57th Street and Minnesota Avenue voting center Tuesday.

She says even with a few minor hiccups, she was happy with the effectiveness of the system.

"There were just a few times when a printer wouldn't print. But we had some extra equipment here and so we were able to cover it. We got 3,200 people through here in 12 hours. That's just an amazing amount. And it's because of those e-poll books," Roust said. 

Roust says they only had to call in issues about five times, which she says is a very small number for an election this big.
