There are three ways to conduct a recount on the iVotronic voting system: (1) an automated recount of the central system; (2) an automated recount of the ballot images; or (3) a manual recount of the ballot images.

(1) The automated recount of the central system involves creating a recount database in the central computer and then rereading the memory cards from each iVotronic voting units affected by the recount.

(2) The automated recount of the ballot images is done by reading each vote cast on each iVotronic voting units from the precincts affected by the recount and recording each vote cast on the unit’s recount tally sheet. This continues until all voting units affected are recounted.

(3) On Model 650 tabulators, the manual recount of the ballot images is done by printing the ballot images from each of the voting units affected by the recount. Once the ballot images are printed, a team of election officials manually count the printed ballots.
