Badger Books - Electronic Poll Books Replace Paper Poll Books

In 2017, Wisconsin Elections Commission staff developed an electronic poll book system to be used in polling places in Wisconsin on Election Day. The "Badger Book" is electronic poll book software that is specific to Wisconsin election practices and statutes. The Badger Book software was created with direct integration into the Wisconsin Voting System (WisVote). Badger Books do not use an internet connection and are as secure as paper pollbooks. The Badger Book has 3 primary uses:

  • Check in voters on election day
  • Register voters on Election Day. 
  • Process absentee ballot

Badger Books replace the current two-person, paper poll book system with a one-person tablet that replicates the poll book. This will also cut down on the time voters are at the polls as they are more efficient.  You will still be required to present photo ID and sign your name on the new electronic tablet.
