The DS200 Digital scan tabulators are the foundation of the St. Johns County voting system. Each voter will receive a paper ballot, mark the ballot by completing an oval next to the voter’s choice, and then place it into the DS200 for immediate tabulation. Voters are alerted of improperly marked ballots and provided an opportunity to review their ballot and obtain a replacement when necessary.
The ADA iVotronic touch screen tabulators (DREs) are provided to allow voters with disabilities to vote independently. An ADA iVotronic device is provided at each precinct on Election Day and each Early Voting Site. An audio feature is available for persons who are blind or visually impaired.
Absentee ballots are counted on a high speed tabulator at the Elections Office. Results from Early Voting, Election Day, and absentee ballots are combined at the Elections Office. After the polls close, election results are released to the public and posted on our website.
