Election Administration








This project is directed by Dr. Joseph Losco, along with Dr. Jay Bagga from Ball State’s Department of Computer Science. The VSTOP team advises the Indiana Secretary of State and the Indiana Election Commission on the certification of voting machines and electronic poll books in Indiana. VSTOP helped pioneer first-in-the-nation legislation authorizing the certification and testing of electronic poll books before they are permitted to be used in elections in Indiana. The project also entails the creation of a database containing all voting machines used in Indiana as well as a report on the best practices of poll worker training.
