Note: As part of state and federal approval, only systems included in this certificate are allowed to be used together to conduct an election in Wisconsin.  Previous versions that were approved by the former Elections Board are not compatible with the new ES&S voting system.  Also, the DS200 is required to be configured to reject all overvote or cross party votes automatically and the voter will not be provided the opportunity to "accept" a ballot that contains these marking errors.  Ballots that contain no valid votes (blank ballot) will provide a query to either "accept" or "return" the ballot.
