Administering an election is a fulltime job requiring extensive preparation and planning that takes place well before voting begins. In elections, details matter. Election officials employ the processes of ballot proofing, logic and accuracy testing and acceptance testing to make sure voting systems will operate accurately, securely and reliably.
Provide a national platform to share cost-efficient procedures and best practices for conducting voting system preparation activities to election officials around the country as they prepare for the 2012 federal elections.
Moderator: Merle King, executive director, Georgia’s Center for Election Systems, Kennesaw State University. Jeannie Layson, EAC director of Communications & Congressional Affairs, will field questions and comments from the public. She will also tweet live throughout the discussion.
