Prime III


Prime III, or the Premier Third Generation Voting System, is an open source voting system developed by Dr. Juan Gilbert of the Human-Centered Computer Lab at the University of Florida. After trials in Oregon, Wisconsin and Florida, it was used statewide in 2016 in New Hampshire, the first state to certify use of the machine. New Hampshire’s configuration of Prime III is called one4all. The one4all system is composed entirely of commercial off-the-shelf software and a free open source software system. The one4all system consists of a Dell Venue 11 Pro 7000 series tablet with an integrated docking station,  an EZ Eyes Model HPO-J1305 large print keyboard, a Jabra headset with microphone and a Brother HL-L2320D laser printer.

After piloting Prime III in selected wards in the 2014 primary election, the New Hampshire Department of State modified the software to accommodate the requirements of the state’s election code and debuted the system in the Presidential primary on February 9, 2016. Prime III can also be used through Gilbert’s other voting systems: Balloting and Televoting. The Balloting system enables voters to fill out their ballots online or through their phone. Once the ballot is completed, the voter will get a QR code that can be scanned at a Prime III-enabled voting machine to speed up the voting process.Televoting allows military and overseas voters to fill out their ballots through Prime III online and have it printed back at their home precinct.1
