One System We Could Find For Elections Error Reporting

One of my readers found this for me.

I still have to investigate further, but I didn't want to waste any time passing the info on to you.

At least one such system exists: EIRS from the Verified Voting Foundation. I have no idea how many, if any, poll workers know about it.



The Election Incident Reporting System (EIRS) is an integrated set of computer tools for recording and analyzing information about voting problems before, during, and after elections. Since 2004, hundreds of organizations and thousands of individuals in the United States have used EIRS to help protect our right to vote and assure that every vote is counted as cast.

EIRS is a project of the Verified Voting Foundation, in cooperation with other Election Protection Coalition member organizations, including the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and People for the American Way Foundation.

The Election Incident Reporting System (EIRS) is an integrated set of tools to assist Election Protection Organizations and their members in carrying out a number of activities, including:

* Collect background and testing information from state & local election officials * Compile and track election irregularity data before, during, and after election day * Organize and manage teams of people and tasks * Dispatch attorneys and technologists rapidly to resolve election day incidents at voting places * Provide an on-line collaborative environment for rapid communication among advocates, attorneys, technologists, election officials, media professionals, and others * Support subsequent research for election policy-making
