What is eSlate™?


*Local political subdivisions: county local propositions, cities, school districts, water districts, hospital districts, and any other local government entity that conducts elections. The majority of these elections are conducted on the May uniform election date.

**Filing deadlines:

  1. Generally, the filing deadline is the 62nd day prior to Election Day (70th day prior to November General Election in even-numbered years); however, the Election Code may provide a different special election filing deadline. See Section 201.054 of the Texas Election Code.
  2. Local political subdivisions, other than cities or school districts, might not have a "first day" to file. Write-in deadlines for general and special elections also vary, but the deadline is usually on the 5th day after the regular filing deadline for the election.

***If no candidate for a four-year term has filed an application for a place on the ballot for a city office, the filing deadline for that office is extended to 5 p.m. of the 57th day before the election. See Section 143.008 of the Texas Election Code.

Water Districts, Chapters 36 & 49
Please note that special procedures apply to a newly-elected director of a water district governed by Chapters 36 or 49 of the Texas Water Code. A duplicate original of the oath (but not the statement of elected/appointed officer) shall also be filed with the secretary of state within 10 days after its execution and need not be filed before the new director begins to perform the duties of office. (Texas Water Code, Sections 36.055, 49.055).

*Local political subdivisions: county local propositions, cities, school districts, water districts, hospital districts, and any other local government that conducts elections. The majority of these elections are conducted on the May uniform election date.

Testimonial eSlate™ Video 

eSlate

The eSlate is an electronic voting system, also known as a Direct Record Electronic (DRE) voting system. The eSlate is manufactured, marketed and supported by Hart InterCivic (www.hartintercivic.com) in partnership with Dell Computer Corporation (www.dell.com).

eSlate has won acclaim for its ease of use, accessibility to disabled voters and fast, efficient ballot tabulation. Its unique Rotary Select™ technology ensures voters can confidently and accurately register their votes.

The eSlate™ is about the size of a legal pad, about one inch thick, and weighs just 5.2 pounds. The voter uses a rotary wheel to move through the ballot and select his or her vote – giving new meaning to the phrase "Harris has moved into the future"!

Using the wheel, you, the voter, select a language – English or Spanish. Next, you are asked to enter the four-digit code you will receive upon check-in at the voting site. The code tells the system which ballot to present to you; the code does NOT identify you in any way and cannot be linked to your vote.

The ballot then appears on the color screen, and you use the wheel to move a highlight bar through the ballot. Once you move the highlight bar onto your desired choice, simply press the large button marked ENTER, and the selection is recorded. That choice turns bold, and all the other choices fade into the background, so you have a strong visual signal of your vote.

If you make a mistake or change your mind, all you have to do is to change the selection – the system won’t let you cast more than the allowable number of votes in a race. After you have voted in the last contest on the ballot, a screen will appear listing all the choices you have made and lets you know if you missed voting in any race. If you choose not to vote in the last contest listed on the ballot, simply press the NEXT button to get to your ballot summary screen. From this screen, you can make corrections, as needed, to be sure your votes are counted the way you want them to be. When you are finished reviewing your ballot, press the CAST BALLOT button to put your ballot into the electronic ballot box.

That’s all there is to it. You don’t have to know anything about computers. The eSlate System is really more of an appliance – a state-of-the-art voting appliance that is sure to make Harris County voting faster and easier.
