Export Database Information to Create Activator Images

This topic explains how to use the Database Export program to pull voter data and other information from the county's voter registration database. This information will then be included in an activator image, which is copied to activators and then loaded onto EViD stations. Running Database Export is a crucial step in the preparation of EViD stations for voting.

Note: This step is not required prior to staging an EViD.

The initial store of information loaded onto EViD stations from voting activators is an extract from the county’ voter registration database. As voting proceeds across the county, each EViD’s data is updated—via internet communications—with voting activity, address changes, and the like, so all stations stay in sync with the latest information in the county database.
