New Voting System Certified for Ohio



July 22, 2009 By

Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner (pictured) has been an outspoken advocate for accountable and transparent election systems, and in 2007, she commissioned the Evaluation & Validation of Election-Related Equipment, Standards & Testing report, (EVEREST) which identified some significant security loopholes in voting equipment. Yesterday, Brunner announced that one of the election systems in question in the EVEREST review -- Elections Systems & Software's Unity 3.2.0.0 voting system -- has now been certified for use in Ohio. This marks the first time in almost three years that new voting equipment has been available for purchase and use by Ohio's 88 county boards of elections, according to a release from Brunner's office.
