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


Voting System Testing Update 2.9.16

Feb 09, 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.

Voting Systems under Test:

ESS EVS 5.4.0.0. A discrepancy was found during ESD testing and ESS is delivering a random sampling of production units for testing to NTS, to make sure the proposed mitigations resolve the discrepancies found during electrical fast transient (EFT), Electrostatic Disruption (ESD), Electrical Power Disturbance and FCC Radiated and Conducted tests. If they pass the tests, NTS will deliver a test report to EAC. If you would like to view documents related to this test campaign, please visit our website. Jessica Myers is the project manager on this test campaign.

Everyone Counts eLect Quad Audit 4.3.0. EAC is reviewing questions from the kick off meeting and working with the VSTL and manufacturer to prepare for testing. If you would like to view documents related to this test campaign, please visit our website. Brian Hancock is the project managers on this test campaign.

Hart Verity Voting 2.0. EAC provided comments on the draft Test Plan to SLI on January 19th and will work through the comments with SLI. SLI is working through document and code review for this modification. Testing is underway and should wrap up in early February. If you would like to view documents related to this test campaign, please visit our website. Jessica Myers is the project manager on this test campaign.
