Hart and Microsoft announce partnership to make elections more secure, verifiable

Every year, Americans head to the polls to cast their ballots on important issues and to elect leaders. While the 2020 contest was a secure and well-managed process, disinformation left many wanting greater transparency into the process of vote tabulation.

When we created ElectionGuard in 2019, one of our goals was that this tool could help provide exactly that for election officials, interested third-parties and individual voters themselves. Today, we’re announcing the next step in bringing ElectionGuard from the lab to the polling booth, with a strategic partnership with Hart InterCivic, a leading vendor of voting systems in the United States. By integrating ElectionGuard into its Verity system, Hart will become the first major U.S. voting system vendor to incorporate end-to-end verifiability into its product line.

To learn more about the partnership, please see our joint press release.
