ES&S Announces New Suite Of Secure Election Products

OMAHA, Neb., July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Election Systems & Software (ES&S) today announced the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) has federally certified the new ES&S EVS 6000. This suite of products provides a new hybrid voting option that ensures the voter's intent is accurately captured while providing a paper ballot.

ES&S ExpressVote XL full-face Universal Voting System displays the full ballot on a 32-inch touch-operated interactive screen and produces a voter-verified paper ballot for tabulation.

"The EVS 6000 product suite represents thousands of hours of development and testing, culminating with the EAC testing and certification of reliability, security and accuracy," ES&S President & CEO Tom Burt said. "EVS 6000 is the most innovative and technologically advanced suite of election products ever certified."

The EVS 6000 suite includes two brand new products from ES&S: the ExpressVote XL full-face Universal Voting System and the ExpressTouch electronic Universal Voting System. The ExpressVote XL displays the full ballot on a 32-inch touch-operated interactive screen and produces a voter-verified paper ballot for tabulation. The use of a touch screen to mark a ballot prevents voters from overvoting (a common mistake), can alert voters about undervotes, and guarantees that the voter's intent is accurately recorded each and every time.

ES&S customers will also benefit from enhancements to ES&S' Election Management System, called Electionware. Among the many enhancements are an innovative new results reporting module, a state of the art application that allows administrators to electronically adjudicate ballots, a new function that masterfully handles the management of write-in votes, and a fully revamped ballot layout package. The new version of Electionware also improves the post-election audit process by creating greater efficiencies and allowing election officials more flexibility to conduct a wide range of post-election audits effectively.

Inside of EVS 6000, the ExpressVote Universal Voting System has also been certified to perform as both a ballot marker and a vote tabulator. This dual compatibility gives jurisdictions the flexibility they need to transition as the needs of voters and voting environments continue to evolve.

Utah and Kansas are two of the first states to use the newly certified EVS 6000 product suite. Curtis Koch, Davis County Utah, Clerk/Auditor, said, "The implementation of the new election system was an overall success! Ballots were processed and counted faster than ever while maintaining a highly secure and transparent election. The Davis County Clerk's office is very pleased with what we have seen in our first election with the new system and are looking forward to many more successfully administered elections."

The ES&S Universal Voting System product family allows every voter, including those with varying physical, cognitive and perceptual abilities, to cast a ballot privately, intuitively and accurately. Voters can navigate ballot selections using the touch screen, the Universal Voting Console (UVC) detachable, audio-tactile keypad or ADA support peripherals. The device offers an intuitive vote selection process through the use of screen prompts, symbols and optional audio.

Security continues to be the cornerstone of the ES&S development process. The EVS 6000 product suite is designed with security controls to limit and detect access to critical system components and to guard against loss of system integrity, availability, confidentiality and accountability. The product suite incorporates the very latest in election security, including heightened audit controls and change-management processes that are built in to make sure election data is safe and secure.

The ES&S team is committed to developing integrated voting solutions that improve the voting experience, are secure, accurate and flexible, meeting a variety of jurisdictions' needs and voter preferences.

Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-sh...
