Nassau County Supervisor of Elections
December 15, 2021
Nassau County, FL, 12/14/21- Nassau County Supervisor of Elections Janet H. Adkins donated various historical voting equipment to the Amelia Island Museum of History this week. The equipment consisted of an ivotronic machine used in the early 2000s, several punch-card voting machines, and most interestingly, metal ballot canisters believed to date back to the 1800s. The metal ballot canisters appeared to have been used to transport ballots from each precinct and included a leather strap for someone to carry them over their shoulder.
“Protecting election integrity, past and present, remains a top priority for our office. Gifting this historical voting equipment to the museum is a small way we can do our part in preserving Nassau County history.” – Janet H. Adkins, Nassau County Supervisor of Elections.
These historical voting systems have been housed in the records room at the Supervisor of Elections office and are considered to be items of historical value. The public can now enjoy these pieces of Nassau County history during museum hours.
The Amelia Island Museum of History is open Monday – Saturday: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Sundays: 1 p.m. – 4 p.m and can be contacted at 904-261-7378.
For any questions or concerns regarding this donation or election-related concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact 904-491-7500 or info@VoteNassauFL.gov.
