18. Happy New Year from North Carolina Verified Voting

In August, 2005 the North Carolina General Assembly passed the Public Confidence in Elections Act, SL 323 which mandated that every voting system in the state produce or use a voter verified paper ballot. This law also set standards for voting systems software and for the vendors selling the software. North Carolina led the way as one of only a dozen or so states with a verified voting law at the time.

Our law has been applauded by several national organizations including the Brennan Center for Justice, Common Cause and the Verified Voting Foundation. The law has been defended in court by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Even today we continue to work to protect the high standards of the Public Confidence in Elections Act while seeking new ways to ensure the voter franchise.
