Reminder for ePollbook Jurisdictions  - Uninstalling & Deleting Files

ePollbook user agreements require all files and programs associated with the installation and use of the EPB be deleted no later than seven days after the Canvass of the election (scheduled for May 26th).  The only exception to this requirement is if a precinct is selected for a post-election audit.  Precincts selected for post-election audits may not delete their EPB files until after the audit has been conducted.

Before deletion of files and programs associated with the EPB, voter history must be uploaded into QVF.  EPB files must be uninstalled after every election as the data is always changing.  Some jurisdictions used old EPB files for the May election and endured great problems as a result.  


For further instructions, refer to the Electronic Pollbook User Manual.  In addition, a short tutorial video clip may be viewed in the eLearning Center on how to import EPB Voter History into QVF.
