Onondaga County is experimenting this Election Day with electronic poll books. Information gleaned from this experience could change the way New Yorkers sign in to vote in this state.
Right now, when voters go to the polls in New York state, an election worker flips through a big book. A voter then signs in next to their name, before casting their ballot.
Electronic poll books would change that first step, with voters' names stored in a laptop-like device, using a signature pad to sign in.
