Why is it helpful for the public to observe these processes and image the poll tapes?
Having members of the public peacefully observe the boot-up of the tabulator and also the tabulation of results helps to increase confidence in elections. The public can verify that certain election processes were done correctly.
Taking a video-recording of poll tapes immediately after they are printed helps increase confidence in the chain of custody of vote totals. When the public is able to verify the results by matching the tape totals to what the state reports, this helps members of the public to verify that no votes were changed or added after tabulation. Poll tapes help create a record that could assist election officials if there are any discrepancies in the vote totals. It is more likely that discrepancies would be corrected before certification of the election.
Ideally, there should be 1-2 poll tape observers in each voting location who can also video-record the poll tapes. go to https://www.transparentelectionsnc.org/poll-tape-project-nc
