Attached above is a memorandum containing the steps clerks may take to procure electronic poll book hardware through Paragon Development Systems (PDS) if they plan to use Badger Books in the August 2018 Partisan Primary. At this time, two configurations are available and both packages include HP’s ElitePOS G1 8GB retail unit as the main piece of hardware. The data sheet for this device can be found here. Each package also contains a 2-D barcode scanner, thermal receipt printing functionality, a 10 pack of thermal receipt paper, Windows 10 Pro, a wireless keyboard and mouse, and PDS configuration services. Orders should be submitted by June 8. Please make your order promptly to ensure that we have enough resources to support your municipality for implementation before the 2018 Partisan Primary.

Package 1 - $1,960.00
• HP ElitePOS G1 retail unit with integrated column thermal receipt printer

Package 2 - $1,985.00
• HP ElitePOS G1 retail unit with separate thermal receipt printer

Staff will provide further communication on Badger Book training and data configuration through the Elections Learning Center. Staff will be in further contact with clerks implementing Badger Books in the August 2018 Partisan Primary to ensure they have the support necessary for a successful implementation.
