Bucks County to deploy digital poll books for general elections

The Bucks County voting system is getting an upgrade.

Gone will be the several thousand-page paper poll books, giving way to new digital tablets that Bucks County officials say will streamline the voting process for constituents and poll workers alike, while saving the county the resources it takes to print and distribute paper poll books for every election.

Starting in November, each of Bucks County’s 307 precincts will primarily use digital tablet poll books to sign in voters and verify signatures. Bucks County will also print paperback poll books a final time for the upcoming elections, purely as a backup and for poll workers who may still be uncomfortable with the new system.

The Buck County Board of Commissioners voted in favor of the move during its meeting on Wednesday.
