Security-Focused Tech Company, Dominion Voting to Implement New Verified Paper Ballot System
(ATLANTA) — After a competitive selection process, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger selects Dominion Voting
Systems to implement its new verified paper ballot system. Implementation of the new secure voting system will start
immediately and be in place and fully operational for the March 24, 2020 Presidential Preference Primary.
“Elections security is my top priority,” said Raffensperger. “We look forward to working with national and local elections
security experts to institute best practices and continue to safeguard all aspects of physical and cyber-security in an
ever-changing threat environment.”
The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has already partnered with the Department of Homeland Security and private
cyber-security companies to provide network monitoring, cyber-hygiene scanning, and cyber-security assessments.
Many Georgia counties have also partnered with DHS to provide physical security assessments of their election offices.
“We are honored to partner with the State of Georgia to deliver a best-in-class system that is fully adaptable to state
needs,” said Dominion CEO John Poulous. “Election officials and voters alike can be assured they are using the most
modern, accessible and security-focused system on the market today, with paper ballots for every vote cast to ease
auditing and ensure confidence in results.”
“As Election Director my job is to make sure every voter has a positive experience,” said Rockdale County Elections
Supervisor, Cynthia Willingham. “We are grateful to the Secretary of State for the new system and will ensure every
voter is able to efficiently and accurately cast their ballot.”
According to Mary Ann Conner of the Fannin County Board of Elections, the above information has been published on the Secretary of State’s Website as well.
