Voting Equipment

Culpeper County currently uses the Patriot touch screen voting system produced by

Unilect Corporation.  All voting units go through an annual maintenance program

and a Logistics & Accuracy testing prior to each and every election. 

Ballots are certified and approved by the State Board of Elections prior to opening

the Absentee period and opening the polls on Election Day.  The voting sytem was

brought online in the May 2004 Town Council Election.



Culpeper County is also part of the State's electronic pollbook program,

reducing wait times for voters at polling places.
