R2 Certified Electronic Voting Machine Recycling

Voting Machine Recycling Services from ATRATR offers secure and cost effective electronic voting machine recycling solutions with free end of life reporting included via our powerful web portal.  In 2002 the Feds passed a new initiative called the HAVA (Help America Vote Act) to help states replace millions of outdated punch card and paper ballot devices.  These older devices were replaced with optical scanners, DRE (Direct Recording Electronic) and various forms of Electronic Ballot Marking systems.  Many of these devices use a special version of Windows XP which is now obsolete and hasn’t qualified for any security updates since 2014.  These outdated operating systems expose security risks that hackers can and will continue to exploit as seen in recent elections.   Improper disposal of EOL (End of Life) voting machines could put  your precinct at risk if these low value high risk items are exported to China and other material hungry markets rich with unscrupulous hackers.  Contact us today for a Free Quote or chat with us live now for more details.
