OpenElect OVI-VC

OpenElect OVI-VC
The OpenElect Voting Interface (OVI-VC) is a multi-faceted and robust ADA voting device which can also accommodate early voting and non-geographical use.

Designed for Voters

The OpenElect Voting Interface (OVI-VC) was developed to provide your voters with varying physical capabilities, the ability to vote independently and privately at the polls. The OVI-VC complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) voting requirements. It assists voters in navigating the ballot via a touchscreen, keypad and/or a sip-and-puff device. It can also provide the voter with an audio presentation of the ballot. The OVI-VC can be setup to accommodate all languages supported by your jurisdiction on both the displayed and audio ballots. The ballot is extremely easy to navigate and the on screen instructions provide easy-to-follow guidance. The OVI-VC reduces pre-printed ballot production and transportation costs by printing the voter’s selections on a paper ballot with just the push of a button. The ballot is then inserted into the OpenElect Voting Optical scan (OVO) to be cast and tallied.

Designed for Election Workers

The Early Voting, Vote Center and Election Day poll workers will find that transporting and setting up the OVI-VC is a quick and simple process. The OVI-VC is a self-contained voting device with a simple start up and close out process. The OVI-VC enclosure contains a touchscreen, a tethered keypad and a printer. Unisyn offers the option of adding a plug-and-play set of headphones and a binary device such as a sip and puff. The startup and close out process for the OVI-VC is effortless and when paired with the OpenElect OVO collecting and tallying election results is straight-forward, saving your jurisdiction time and money.
