Electronic Signature Capture Devices

In accordance with HB 2373, the SOS has prescribed rules regarding the approval and use of electronic signature capture devices for use with the signature roster.  A full copy of the proposed rules is available (Search for 81.58 under Rule Number).  In the rules, you will find the process for seeking approval of an electronic signature capture device.  

We are now accepting formal approval requests from vendors regarding the use of electronic signature capture devices. We will accept them via email as long as the request is attached on a company’s letterhead. In accordance with the proposed rules, we may request a demonstration of the product. An interested vendor may want to include screenshots or photos of the product and product display with their request so that our office can better evaluate the need for an in-person demonstration.

Electronic signature capture devices will be approved with respect to a particular vendor or software. This is to ensure that election officials who choose to purchase certain devices will know whether it will work in conjunction with the software or system they are using.

If you have additional questions, please contact, the Elections Division via email or by phone at 1-800-252-VOTE (8683).
