How Do I know if my Voting System is EAC Certified?

That’s easy – look at the voting system’s certification documents -- the Certificate of Conformance and the Scope of Certification. They contain the EXACT specifications for the voting system that was certified by EAC, including the official name of the system and the testing standard. Categories and examples of specifications covered:
- System component (scanner, ballot marking device)
- Software (COTS, voting counting logic)
- Hardware (COTS, monitors, scanners, printers)
- Operating system (Windows, Linux, Unix)
The Scope includes the voting system limitations, such as the maximum number of contests or ballot styles the system can handle. Also included is a list of items that are unique to the voting system, such as whether it can print precinct level reports. There’s a functionality checklist and a chronicle of any engineering change orders that were included with the voting system. Graphic depictions of the system are also available. The Certificate of Conformance and the Scope of Certification for every EAC certified voting system is available here.
Look for the EAC certification seal!
