|It is our pleasure to introduce the UniLect PATRIOT "Touch-Screen" Voting System... the easiest-to-use, lightest weight, most cost-effective, least expensive, Direct Recording voting system in America. This first-of-its-kind Liquid Crystal, Touch-Screen system is receiving the highest reviews from both voters and election officials alike, wherever it is used.
The UniLect Patriot...
Used in hundreds of jurisdiction-wide elections
Always finished early on election night.
Replaced every other type of system
(including another DRE electronic system).
Has had several recounts. Each confirmed election night totals.
UniLect has never been responsible for a significant hardware or software election problem.
No other company or system can claim all of these points.
We feel it encompasses the very best of all present systems, without any of the accompanying drawbacks of those systems.
It is small like the punch card system (even uses the same booths), but does not have punch, crimp and assemble, mechanical counting problems, or the many ballot card problems.
It has all of the advantages and features of the most up-to-date Direct Recording electronic voting machines, but it is much lighter, and far simpler to use and administer.
It is approximately the same total cost over a 7-year span as an optical mark precinct system, but doesn't utilize expensive, hard to make ballots (or any ballots at all for that matter), or have "voter intent" recount problems, or have mechanical counting problems. After 7 years it is much more cost efficient.
Like a mechanical voting machine, it doesn't permit overvotes, and the price of the PATRIOT allows many more voting units in each precinct.
