Innovative Voting Technology Promises Secure Operation

Election Systems & Software (ES&S) announces that federal certification testing is underway for an all-new end to end voting system that includes not one, but two new tabulation solutions for today's voters. The company’s research and development teams tapped into information collected through feedback and design sessions with our Nation's election officials, as well as Jurisdictions' real world experience, to create two all-new tabulation products soon be a part of the company's fully integrated suite of election management products.


The ExpressTouch Electronic Universal Voting System is designed as a replacement for the nation's aging fleet of direct record electronic devices. The ExpressTouch compact tablet provides a secure and intuitive voting experience all within a 15-inch HD touch screen. The ExpressTouch portable booth functions as a stationary platform for voters and collapses into a self-contained transport and storage case for the tablet.

The other new addition to the system is the ExpressVote XL, a full-face Universal Voting System, which includes an independent voter-verifiable paper record. The ExpressVote XL offers a voting experience reminiscent of the unforgettable gear-and-lever voting machine complete with privacy curtain, via a secure, modern, paper-based voting terminal that serves every voter, and includes all ballot choices for the jurisdiction on an easy to use 32-inch HD touch screen. The unit provides a vote summary screen that allows voters the opportunity to confirm or revise selections before printing their vote summary card.


Security is a cornerstone of the ES&S development process. The operating software for both the ExpressTouch and ExpressVote XL was designed with security access controls to limit and detect access to critical system components and to guard against loss of system integrity, availability, confidentiality, and accountability. Each units' hardware was designed to protect against tampering during system maintenance, or interventions in system operations, and in response to system failure. Also, system access during equipment preparation, testing and operation is limited by access codes, physical locks and seals. Security safeguards cannot be bypassed or deactivated during system installation or operation.
