Customized Address Parser provides immediate automated Precinct assignment during data entry and maintenance activities. Our unique database structure provides automatic re-precincting on precinct boundary changes, precinct splits, and precinct joins. EIMS® will ensure that major district lines are not crossed, that precincts are not assigned to more than one type of district, and can even report on precincts missing a specific district type. GIS data import/exports are available for sharing and sychronizing street data between the Elections Division and County GIS systems.


Our Election Workspace Module allows the processing of multiple elections at once without interference.  The Election Workspace automates the process of Contest Drafting, Ballot Typing (ballot styles), precinct consolidation and ballot order functions.

Statewide Voter Registration database integration is virtually transparent to the User.
