Certification work continues at EAC

In the last few weeks, The EAC received several inquiries regarding its ability to certify voting systems without a quorum of EAC Commissioners.
The Commission voted on the adoption of the Voting System Certification and Testing Manual, which delegates the tasks of testing, certifying and decertifying voting equipment to specific EAC staff. The Testing and Certification Division is responsible for conducting day-to-day activities related to testing and certifying voting systems. These activities include, but are not limited to: discrepancy resolution, responding to Request for Information, and reviewing test plans and reports.
The Executive Director (or Acting Executive Director) is the Decision Authority for all voting system certifications. The EAC Commissioners act as the appeal body only in instances in which a decision not to certify a voting system or a decision to decertify a voting system is appealed by the voting system manufacturer.
