An U.S. Election Assistance Commission blog about Testing and Certification Department Voting System Updates.


Voting System Testing Update 10.18.16

Oct 18, 2016

The "Voting System Testing Update" blog is an effort to keep everyone informed of the progress systems in the EAC’s Testing and Certification Program are making each week.  We hope that this adds additional transparency to our process and allows stakeholders to get a weekly update about test campaigns that impact their jurisdiction.
