Lutes' company may see boost from vote center law
Indiana voters casting ballots in future elections may find the
check-in process smoother and faster, thanks to software from a Purdue
Research Park-based firm that assists election administrators.
DelMar Information Technologies LLC has developed Electronic Poll Book to assist county officials who establish vote centers. The software has been used successfully in previous elections in Cass and Tippecanoe counties.
"Election officials use Electronic Poll Book to import the complete list of voters and absentee votes from the Indiana Statewide Voter Registration System into a database before Election Day," said Kyle Lutes, founder and president of DelMar Information Technologies and associate professor of Computer and Information Technology at Purdue University. "On election day, poll workers use a standard Web browser to log into the database and check in voters by searching a first name, last name, date of birth, voter identification or Statewide Voter Registration System ID."
