Raffensperger last week asked Pro V&V, an Alabama-based testing laboratory, to do the audit, his office said in a news release. The company “found no evidence of the machines being tampered. ”
“We are glad but not surprised that the audit of the state’s voting machines was an unqualified success, ” Raffensperger said in the release.
The new election system the state bought last year from Dominion Voting Systems for more than $100 million includes touchscreen voting machines that print paper ballots that are read and tabulated by scanners.
The audit was done on a random sample of voting machines from Cobb, Douglas, Floyd, Morgan, Paulding and Spalding counties. The equipment tested included the touchscreen voting machines, precinct scanners and absentee ballot scanners.
The company took the software and firmware out of the equipment to check that the only software and firmware present was that certified for use by the secretary of state's office, the release says.
Pro V&V is a voting system test laboratory that is certified by the U. S. Election Assistance Commission, which sets voluntary guidelines for election management and certification.
