Ada County is helping you keep an eye on your ballot
As Election Day approaches, many candidates and voters wonder about who’s keeping track of the ballots. Now, according to Ada County Elections Office officials, they can take part in the process.
In the spirit of transparency, the Elections office has now provided candidates and voters with the ability to watch the ballots at Elections.
You can do so by going to their website, www.AdaCountyElections.com. Under the Candidate Information tab is an option for Ballot Cameras. There are five cameras streaming live video of each of the areas in the Ada County Elections Office where ballots are stored. The VLC media player is required in order to view the video streams.
Officials say his new tool provides anyone who has questions about ballot security the tools to ensure the ballots are safe. Observers will notice that there are always a minimum of two people present when accessing the ballots. The five cameras cover the blank ballots waiting to go out on Election Day, the returned absentee ballots, counted ballots, and the warehouse were ballots can travel in between.
