Preview Badger Book – New electronic Poll Book
Overview: In 2017, Wisconsin Elections Commission staff developed an electronic poll book application for use in Wisconsin elections. The Badger Book is the only electronic poll book authorized for use in Wisconsin and is the only e-poll book application with direct WisVote integration. Badger Books do not use an internet connection.
The Badger Book is used to check in voters, process Election Day Registrations (EDRs), and record absentee participation. In short, Badger Books perform the functions currently processed on a paper poll book. After Election Day, a data file generated from the Badger Book is used to upload election participation and Election Day Registration information into WisVote.
