Questions and Answers
CAN WE GET UNITS WITHOUT LABELS?
Yes. Vote Armor units do not come with labelling. Since every county has a preference of the look and the instructions on their drop boxes, we provide them as a blank canvas. There are many great companies equipped to provide the service of labelling. If you would like assistance, just let us know and we will do our best to coordinate with them.
HOW MUCH DOES AN OUTDOOR BALLOT BOX WEIGH?
Each box is approximately 600 lbs with only a slight variation depending on the leg style chosen.
ARE COLORS AVAILABLE BESIDES WHITE?
Yes. While white is the standard color, you may select any other color available in powder coat finishes. There may be additional costs associated with your color choice if it is not a stock color. We do suggest white for ADA compliance as it provides the most contrast against lettering when using black letters, and high contrast is an ADA compliance consideration.
ARE VOTE ARMOR DROP BOXES WEATHER RESISTANT?
Yes. Vote Armor has designed weather resistant features into the drop box, however consideration should be given to the appropriate placement and application.
ARE SINGLE SLOT BOXES EXPANDABLE?
Yes. The Single Slot Vote Armor boxes have an available second port on the drive up side which we block off with a discrete, flush security plate. A locking slot assembly can be purchased separately when you are ready to expand it to a dual slot unit. By default, the single slot units utilize the walk up slot but upon request, the drive up slot can be used instead. We do this for safety, as it is not advisable to encourage walk up voters to step into traffic.
ARE VOTE ARMOR BOXES FULLY WELDED?
Yes. We weld each unit fully for ultimate security. No rivets are used in the construction of our boxes.
ARE THE LEGS REMOVEABLE FOR RELOCATION?
Yes. Vote Armor boxes attach to their legs using 16 bolts from the inside. They cannot be removed unless the box is opened by a key-holder and with the appropriate tools. This feature allows boxes to be easily moved to different locations without a full uninstallation. Additional leg sets are available separately.
