How Electronic Vote Counting Machines Work: Central Counting Equipment COCER-200A
An electronic vote counting machine is a device that can automatically scan, count and tabulate ballots in an election, which can improve the efficiency, accuracy and transparency of the voting process, as well as reduce the cost and human error involved. A case in point is the COCER-200A, a central counting equipment developed by Integelection. COCER-200A is specifically designed for paper elections and is utilized in centralized ballot counting situations.
The Working Process of the COCER-200A
The COCER-200A is a central counting equipment that can scan, count and tabulate ballots in an election.
Here is a detailed description of how it works:
The ballots are fed into the machine by a feeder tray, which can hold up to 500 ballots at a time. The feeder tray has a sensor that detects the number of ballots and adjusts the speed accordingly. The feeder tray also has a separator that prevents multiple ballots from entering the machine at once.
The machine scans the ballots with a high-resolution camera, and recognizes the marks, characters or barcodes on them. The camera has a built-in light source that ensures a clear image of the ballots. The machine uses advanced algorithms to identify the voting choices and candidates on the ballots, and converts them into digital data.
The machine counts the votes according to the predefined rules and criteria, and rejects any invalid ballots, such as blank, over-voted, under-voted or damaged ones. The machine has a verification system that checks the accuracy and consistency of the data, and alerts the operator if there is any discrepancy or error. The machine also has a backup system that records the data in case of power failure or malfunction.
The machine sorts the ballots into different bins, such as valid, invalid, rejected or disputed ones, and ejects them into corresponding trays. The machine has a sorting mechanism that uses air pressure and rollers to move the ballots into the appropriate bins. The machine also has a display that shows the number and percentage of ballots in each bin.
The machine generates and prints various reports, such as vote counts, statistics, audit logs and images of scanned ballots, and displays them on a touch screen or a monitor. The machine has a printer that can print the reports on paper or thermal paper. The machine also has a touch screen or a keyboard that allows the operator to view, edit or export the reports in different formats, such as PDF, CSV or XML.
The machine stores the data and images of scanned ballots in a secure and encrypted format, and transmits them to a central server via a network or a USB device. The machine has a memory card that can store up to 32 GB of data and images. The machine also has a network interface or a USB port that enables the data and images to be transferred to a central server or an external device.
The machine can be operated by a touch screen or a keyboard, and has a user-friendly interface that supports multiple languages. The machine has a touch screen or a keyboard that allows the operator to control the functions and settings of the machine, such as start, stop, pause, resume, reset or test. The machine also has an interface that supports multiple languages, such as English, Chinese, Spanish or French.
The machine can be connected to other devices, such as printers, scanners or monitors, via USB or HDMI ports. The machine has USB ports that allow the connection of external devices, such as printers, scanners or flash drives. The machine also has HDMI ports that allow the connection of external monitors or projectors.
Why use an electronic vote counting machine?
There are several reasons why an electronic vote counting machine like the COCER-200A is beneficial in the voting process:
1.Robust and compact design: The machine is designed to withstand harsh environments and transportation. With its metal casing, it is protected from dust, moisture, and impact. Additionally, the machine is equipped with wheels and handles, making it easy to move and transport to different locations.
2.Fast and accurate counting: The COCER-200A significantly speeds up the vote counting process compared to manual counting. With its advanced scanning technology and algorithms, it can quickly and accurately scan, count, and tabulate ballots.
3.Reliability and transparency: The machine's ability to generate detailed reports, such as vote counts, statistics, audit logs, and scanned ballot images, enhances transparency in the voting process.
Overall, the COCER-200A electronic vote counting machine offers a reliable and efficient solution for election authorities, improving the speed, accuracy, and transparency of the voting process, and ultimately meeting the needs and expectations of voters and stakeholders.
