Outstanding Innovation in Election Cybersecurity and Technology 

Use of IoT in Tracking Ballot Boxes 

The county partnered with AT&T to build a network platform providing an IoT (Internet of Things) solution aimed at improving operational efficiency. The IoT platform works by tracking the ballot boxes that are transported each day from the Voting Center sites to the Tally Operation Center. The system creates a bread crumb trail with frequent reports when a ballot box is in motion and sends alerts for arrival and departure. The IoT solution is designed to provide a documented chain of custody trail for ballots.
