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 weekly update about test campaigns that impact their jurisdiction.

The EAC would like to welcome Votem Corporation of Cleveland, OH as the newest EAC registered voting system manufacturer. We look forward to working with the folks at Votem on test campaigns in the very near future.
