Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 124 / Wednesday, June 29, 2005 / Notices of ballot choices for verification purposes. Voter verified paper audit trails do not provide independent verification because the printer prints from the same data source that produces the DRE summary screen display. • Appendix E contains the NASED Voting System Standards Board Technical Guide #1 on color and contrast adjustment for individuals with low vision or color blindness. Volume II Summary: Volume II, the Voting System National Certification Testing Guidelines, is a complementary document to Volume I. Volume II provides an overview and specific detail of the national certification testing process, which is performed by independent voting system test labs accredited by the EAC. It is intended principally for use by vendors, test labs, and election officials who certify, procure, and accept voting systems. This volume contains the following sections: • Section 1 presents an overview of the testing guidelines and the national certification testing process. • Section 2 provides a description of the Technical Data Package that vendors are required to submit with their system for certification testing. • Section 3 describes the basic functionality testing requirements. • Sections 4 through 6 define the requirements for hardware, software and system integration testing. • Section 7 describes the required examination of vendor quality assurance and configuration management practices. • Appendix A provides the requirements for the National Certification Test Plan that is prepared by the voting system test lab and provided to the EAC for review. • Appendix B describes the scope and content of the National Certification Test Report which is prepared by the test lab and delivered to the EAC along with a recommendation for certification. • Appendix C describes the guiding principles used to design the voting system certification testing process. It also contains a revised section on testing system error rates. The format of the Guidelines is intended to facilitate ease of identifying new information and comparison with the 2002 Voting Systems Standards. New material is indicated by a grayshaded header with the words ‘‘NEW MATERIAL,’’ and includes line numbers. Material essentially carried forward in its entirety from the 2002 Voting Systems Standards remains in its original format and does not include line numbers. Selected portions of this material have been revised to reflect the VerDate jul<14>2003 17:40 Jun 28, 2005 Jkt 205001 EAC process for voting system certification, specifically Volume I, Section 1.6.1, and Volume II Section 1.
