Votem Corporation Certified to Participate in EAC’s Voting System & Testing Certification Program
August 29, 2017
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Silver Spring, Md. – The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) today announced that Votem Corporation has been officially registered to participate in the commission’s Voting System Testing & Certification Program. The designation follows an EAC determination that the Cleveland, Ohio-based company meets all of the requirements noted in its certification Program Manual. Votem Corporation is now permitted to submit voting systems for EAC examination and certification.
“Competition drives innovation in any industry, including elections,” said Brian Hancock, Director of the EAC’s Testing and Certification Program. “We welcome Votem Corporation to our list of registered voting equipment manufacturers and look forward to working with the company and seeing their new line of products.”
Votem Corporation is the 18th election manufacturer registered to participate in the testing and certification program, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year. The Testing and Certification program was a requirement of the Help America Vote Act of 2002, legislation that created the EAC and mandated that the commission provide certification, decertification, and recertification of voting systems, as well as the accreditation of voting system testing laboratories. This legislation marked the first time the federal government funded these activities, a step that allowed states to procure new certified voting systems without the added expense of independent testing and certification.
