Election Equipment
You may be hearing on talk radio and television concerns about election equipment within the Country.  Our Vernon Election Clerk just attended a 3-hour security seminar on our voting equipment.  Here is a link to the election machine the Village of Vernon uses:  ES&S Election System Software. 
Our tabulators (where all ballots are inserted) are the DS200 and we also use the Express Vote machines for our voters that need enhanced equipment for any type of disability.  
We did speak with our representatives from ES&S about election security and they work continually on software updates for any type of voter breach.  We also know Waukesha County's IT department is devoted to protecting all County information including the voting machine security.  
After the election, our machines modem voter information to the County on election night. The local, County and State Boards of Canvass must all balance the information on the election machines, pollbooks and the information in Wisvote.
Our Village IT vendor is also copied and apprised on all State, County and Federal cyber updates.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
