Once the voter is authenticated, identifiers are removed to ensure a secret ballot.
GES' proprietary scanning and tabulation software system was designed to scan and tabulate offline to remove the opportunity for hacking.
All valid ballots are scanned using high-speed optical scanners and tabulated with GES' advanced OMR/OCR/Barcode imaging software featuring de-skewing, de-speckling and image correction.
