Prince George County currently uses the Accu-vote optical-scan voting tabulator. The voter marks paper ballots and the votes are scanned and calculated by the end of the day. As of January 2006, one handicap accessible touch screen is also available in each precinct. The Accu-vote is the primary source of voting. Any voter may request to use the touch screen, but handicapped voters have top priority.
The touch screen is a requirement of the Help America Vote Act and is to ensure any voter, regardless of handicap, can cast their vote independently.
