The Center for Election Systems
The Center for Election Systems at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia, was founded in 2002 for the purpose of supporting the Elections Division of the Office of the Secretary of State of Georgia, in the statewide deployment of a uniform voting system.
Faculty at KSU have conducted certification tests of computer-based voting system for the State since 1988. Based on this expertise, the University proposed the formation of a center to support the installation and end-user training for the new voting system. The Secretary of State authorized KSU to create a Center for Election Systems, dedicated to assisting with the deployment of the DRE voting technology and providing ongoing support. 100% of the funding for the Center’s operation comes from the State of Georgia.
