Voting System Testing Update

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 regular update about test campaigns that impact their jurisdiction.

annual_eac_vendor_conference_2018_06Other Program News: On May 10, 2018, EAC staff hosted our bi-annual meeting with registered voting system manufacturers at the EAC offices.  This meeting included updates on EAC policies and programs, allowed representatives of the manufacturing community to ask questions of the EAC staff and to have individual one-on-one sessions to discuss specific test campaign information. As an added bonus, the manufacturers got to meet and speak with Representatives Hoyer and Raskin, who were also visiting the EAC on that day.

If you would like more information about the certification process, please read Chapter 4 and 5 of the Testing and Certification Program Manual.  If you have additional questions or would like additional information about a particular voting system, please email Brian Hancock at BHancock@eac.gov.
