EAC Issues Two System Advisories for Unity 3.2.1.0

Posted on August 2, 2011

EAC has issued two system advisories for the Unity 3.2.1.0, DS200 component. System Technical Advisory ESS2011-02 notifies jurisdictions using this equipment to be aware that during local acceptance testing, multiple DS200 ballot scanners exhibited an anomaly in which touch screen interfaces were unresponsive.

System Technical Advisory ESS2011-03 notifies jurisdictions that use Unity 3.2.1.0 that during local acceptance testing a DS200 ballot scanner failed to count a marked ballot position resulting in a lost vote.

The advisory alerts include recommended procedures, possible root causes and contact information for those jurisdictions with additional questions. System Advisory Alerts are issued in accordance with EAC’s Quality Monitoring Program when an anomaly occurs on an EAC-certified voting system.
