Behind Your Ballot: How election ballots are printed and verified in AZ
Arizona plays a bigger role in the election process than you probably realize. ABC15 was granted rare access inside Phoenix-based company Runbeck Election Services to see how ballots are printed and verified.
NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER of invention as they say. Maricopa County had a problem to solve: they needed to print an envelope and use a Ballot On-Demand printer in the early voting environment. The Solution? Runbeck tailored the Sentio System to print a replacement mail ballot request and envelope using a single request. This advancement quickly morphed into providing the ability to print seven different print requests. The Sentio System can now print a provisional receipt with variable information specific to a single elector, as well as produce Direct Recording Electronic instructions for the poll worker to program a voter access card. The custom-built Envelope Printing Software has the capability of digesting a text file of various formats. This game-changing feature is now incorporated into the Sollus product line giving customers the full control of printing and mailing their outbound mail ballots at their convenience.
New software and equipment developments are an ongoing need for every county with the endless range of election requirements. Maricopa partnered with Runbeck to solve their problem which now in turn will help other counties. It’s great to be part of the Solution!
IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE 2018 is complete! Major elections across the nation made this years Midterm election as busy and exciting as a Presidential election cycle. At Runbeck, we took the opportunity between elections to move our entire production and staff to a new purpose-built facility that we constructed from the ground up specifically for elections. (Check out the 2-1/2 minute timelapse video of the entire build…it makes it look simple!) The 90,000 sq.ft. facility is located across from the Phoenix airport and near the Post Office. The location provides us with improved efficiencies and easier access for customer visits. The facility enhances physical and virtual security, utilizes solar panels for much of our energy and employs a growing and dynamic Runbeck team who call the Valley of the Sun home.
We’re only breaking into 2019 and several elections have already been processed with many more on the schedule. Of course, planning for 2020 is heavily underway. It won’t be long until we start supporting 2020 petition efforts with our newest Vocem software allowing counties and states to seamlessly and quickly process petition pages…a HUGE time, space and resource-saver during elections. There’s so much to look forward to with our software and equipment in the next years! Reach out to Runbeck anytime with questions or to schedule a tour now that we’re settled in.
