The machine has firmware rather than software. The machines are ES&S M100 Optical Scan Readers (). We do not have the optional modem in our machines & the parallel & serial ports are locked behind a metal door.

Again as far as updating goes - the machine is very simple. If a machine were for some reason no longer be able to run the basic program that allows it to count, we would remove it from use.

Here is the NASS statement about that event: . There is 1 memory card port in the machine, in which the memory card is sealed before being sent out. Once at the polling location our poll workers then also lock the sealed memory card behind a metal flap.

Challengers are the only ones allowed in the polling places on Election Day because they undergo training not to disrupt voting. But, activities such as Public Tests are open to the public. If you are unhappy with Missouri Election Law, please contact your state representatives.

These memory cards are programmed in a clean room. Each one is then tested for logic and accuracy before being sealed inside of the machine in preparation for every election. We also host a Public Test were the public can come verify that the machines are working accurately.

The machine is very simple, so the software doesn't "update." It says how many ballots it has received and how many votes there are per race. The actual election information is not housed in the machine - the races are programmed onto a memory card.

Hi Jonathon, you are correct - line length was absolutely a factor. We sent out all of the touch screen voting machines we have, but we knew due to the length of the ballot there would still be long lines for these machines -so we sent extra paper ballots to every poll.
