Example Ballots from 2016 Primary

These ballots are chosen largely because they are difficult to intepret by machine and may require human interpretation

Dominion’s Democracy Suite 4.21 system in Denver CO separated these ballots for human adjudication (among others that were separated and not included here).

Ballot scans delivered by the voting system are 1 bit per pixel and 200 dpi. That is why the quality appears rough. Also the oval voting target for each choice is not visible because it was deliberately printed in red on the paper and the scanner has been directed to ignore red ink so that the target does not appear in these scans.

The reason I have uploaded these particular scans is to provide a test data sample for the development of a cast vote record standard. It will also be necessary to include ballot samples from other types of elections and other vendors’ ballot designs. This particular sample demonstrates voter marking style and method differences. I have also included one Dominion ballot from a different county to show some differences available within vendor.

Links are to the original format from the Dominion Democracy Suite 4.21 voting system. It is a two page .tif with the image of the interpretation described by the vendor as an AuditMark® in the second page.
