The DS-200 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 DS-200 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 ExpressVote allows voters with disabilities to mark their ballot independently. An ExpressVote device is provided at each polling location on Election Day and each Early Voting Site.
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.
