A new polling system called the electronic poll book will welcome voters at each precinct in East Lansing on Tuesday. Free to communities around the nation through the Help America Vote Act, e-poll books will bring many changes to election night. According to East Lansing council members, changes will include shorter lines for voters and quicker, more convenient voting. Additionally, the e-poll book will result in less paperwork and fewer clerical errors for election clerks. Instead of using paper poll books, voters will hand election workers their license or ID card.
