New Election Equipment
Sherburne County has purchased new election equipment from Dominion Voting Systems. The equipment will be used starting with the 2016 Primary Election on August 9th.
The ImageCast Evolution (ICE) equipment to be used at the polling place allows voters to cast their ballot, as well as accommodate accessibility needs, and provide a truly private and independent voting experience for everyone.
Absentee ballots will be counted at the Auditor/Treasurer's office using a new central count machine, the ImageCast Central Count (ICC).
The new equipment will be on display at the Auditor/Treasurer office at the Sherburne County Government Center starting June 10, 2016. For more information about the new equipment, please email the Auditor/Treasurer office or call 763-765-4351.
