U.S. Election Assistance Commission

Board of Advisors


April 23 – 24, 2018

Resolution 2018 – 03


Offered by: Philip Stark

Title: Auditability of Voter Intent

Whereas principle 9 of VVSG 2.0 embraces the auditability of the correctness of election results as a key property of voting systems, including the principle of software independence in principle 9.1 and resilience in 9.3; and

Whereas the only existing technology that permits such auditability, software independence, and resilience is a voter-verified paper trail,

Now Therefore, Be It Resolved the Board of Advisors recommend that the EAC not certify any system that does not use voter-verifiable paper as the official record of voter intent.


Adopted April 24, 2018
