Videk VisionSensors™ VS2010-FT are easy-to-use, handheld scanners that read, and store the Fluorescent ID Tags (S18c) content, so that State Election Boards can ensure that every mail-in ballot is dated, tracked and counted. These scanners are manufactured and sourced exclusively in Upstate New York.
“For over 30 years, Videk has developed a portfolio of solutions for the mail and security printing industry,” said Tom Slechta, President, and CEO, Videk. “We are extremely pleased to play a critical role in vote-by-mail ballot integrity. As we approach the presidential election, we have seen a sharp increase in demand for our scanners.”
One Voter Services Manager for their Secretary of State’s Elections office, says “We purchased Videk’s VS2010-FT scanners for all of our county elections officials to read the S18c postal codes. Because we are a “Postmark State,” we are required to have a backup protocol if the postmark is missing or illegible.”
Videk is selling these scanners nationwide to state and county officials who will use them to read a fluorescent mark printed on mail-in ballot envelopes. Each fluorescent barcode includes a date-stamp data, so that Election Boards can verify the date mail-in ballots are received even if the postmark is missing or is not legible.
