Automated Mail-in Ballot Processing
with Voter Signature Verification

This upcoming election cycle will generate millions of Mail-In Ballots. In the 2016 Election, over 32 Million absentee ballots were cast, roughly 15% of the voting population. That was before voters were concerned about voting in person. These mail-in ballots will need to be signature verified BEFORE the ballot is processed. This huge influx will create a severe burden on small and medium sized counties that are not set up to handle the sheer volume of these absentee ballots. In the past, the few ballots that were received over a period of weeks could be processed by hand and added to the returns. That may no longer be the case.

Thankfully, someone has come up with a system to rapidly scan and verify voter signatures on Mail-In ballots WITHOUT opening the ballot and thereby limiting physical contact.


Scanning with the Voter Signature Verification System

How it Works: The mail-in voter ballots are stacked into a high speed document scanner. The scanner scans the sealed envelope (ballot) and pulls the signature off the envelope. The voter's signature is compared to a signature on file with an integrated signature verification software. This award winning software is used by banking institutions and has been implemented by several states for mail-in ballot processing.

Examples of inconsistent authentic signatures

The signature is given a "confidence score". Any mail-in voter ballot rated above the threshold (set by you) is then passed through to your ballot reading system. Any mail-in voter ballot reading below the threshold is set aside to be manually reviewed. This system allows the review process to quickly fast track the "good ones" and focus the manual labor on the ballots with issues. Each Mail-in voter ballot is imprinted while being scanned with Date, Time and Batch for easy reference and validation. How many "labor hours" does it take to process 1,000 mail-in voter Ballots versus the time of ONE hour on ONE machine? And yes, it's affordable and cost justifyable for small and medium size counties.

Any scanner can scan a sheet of paper, many scanners can scan thicker sheets of paper, some can scan folded sheets of paper, and only a very few can scan thick, folded, sheets of paper at a high speed without errors. That's the Kodak i4000 and i5000 series scanners.
