The system involves the voters presenting their ID to computer operators, instead of submitting them to polling stations' staff. The system then confirms the voter is over 18 years of age, not deprived of the voting right, possibly listed in another election district, and has not already voted in the same poll. Red-flagging by the computer allows the polling station chairman to prevent a person from voting or direct them to the proper polling station.

The system requires 30,000 trained operators. AEP has started the recruiting procedure.AGERPRES
