EAC and NIST will host a symposium to explore emerging trends in voting system technology.

Watch the archived webcast here!

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are sponsoring a two and a half day symposium to explore emerging trends in voting system technology with the diverse election community at large. The sponsoring organizations seek to have lively discussion on the following topics:
  • Why some jurisdictions are exploring building their own voting systems
  • Trends in voting system technology acquisition and deployment plans
  • How election officials, manufactures, young voters, and academics view the future of voting system technologies
  • Alternative standard development processes for voting systems
  • Alternative methods for voting system testing and certification at the Federal and State level
The symposium will provide an environment for interactive discussions among the attendees including election officials, voting system manufacturers, voting system test laboratories, standard developers, academics, and Federal, State, and local government officials. The symposium will encourage attendee participation through panel discussions with limited presentations to frame the topics to be explored. The first day of the symposium will explore voting system technology trends seen by election officials, voting system manufacturers, and young voters. The second day of the symposium will explore alternative ways for voting system standards development, testing, and certification that support the trends identified on the first day. The final half-day will discuss technologies that can lead to more usable, accessible and secure voting systems, and conclude with an open discussion session with the attendees. The discussions for the symposium will be used by the organizations to increase the efficiency and agility of the standardization, testing, and certification processes for future voting system technologies.
