SAN JOSE — County of Santa Clara Supervisors have awarded the County’s Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) Voting Contract to Sequoia Voting Systems, Inc. Following an extensive competitive process that included a four-month pilot program and extensive community input, the County of Santa Clara Registrar of Voters recommended Sequoia Voting Systems as the preferred vendor to implement its new Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) Voting System. The action keeps the County on track to meet a court-ordered deadline, requiring the replacement of punch card voting systems in California.

The five-year contract is for $18.9 million dollars and will cover the cost of 5,500 Touch Screen Units and related equipment, project management, training, and public communication and outreach.
