Create an Activator Image

The EVID > Create Activator Image program is used to create an image containing voter data, system settings, and other information, which will then be copied to early-voting activators.

Just prior to the start of early voting or election day, a worker at the voting site plugs an early-voting activator into each EViD station. The information is then copied automatically to the EViD’s storage device. When the copy is complete, the activator can be removed.

All data for all EViDs is present on every activator, so you can load any activator on any EViD station. The same voting activator can be used to load database information into multiple EViDs. It is not necessary that an activator remain plugged into an EViD station during voting.
