The Verifier is the most comprehensive public data set on voting equipment usage in the U.S. It tracks the type of equipment being used in every state – a surprisingly complex undertaking as every state (and often every county or municipality) can make its own choices about voting systems. The Verifier is a trusted resource for everyone – from government officials, to independent researchers, to journalists – and has informed election protection efforts, election security legislation, and everything in between.
Voting Equipment Database
The U.S.’s aging voting equipment makes its election infrastructure vulnerable, and some states have more resilient voting equipment than others. Purchase (procurement) decisions about voting equipment may be made statewide or locally. Voting equipment undergoes certification by the US Election Assistance Commission (EAC) and state election certification bodies. Verified Voting’s in-house database provides extensive background on the equipment we use to cast – and count – our votes.
