How to vote

Electronic Polling (MAE)

In the Assembly of Madrid elections on 24 May 2015 the MAE system will be implemented in the municipality of Alcobendas.

Electronic Polling consists of providing electoral tables on election day with IT tools to facilitate the tasks that table workers must perform.

These tools automate tasks such as voter identification, printing of documentation, creation of voting sheets and the electronic transmission of constitution, participation and results to the Information Collection Centre.

The IT tools to be provided to each electoral table are:

  • Laptop computer with GPRS modem and electronic DNI reader
  • Printer
  • SD card with the roll corresponding to the electoral table

Polling workers designated to use MAE shall receive a specific manual for Electronic Polling Workers and the assistance on election day of a Representative appointed by the authorities calling the election for that day.
