Abstract: In this report, Professors Alvarez and Hall discuss the challenge of moving toward the implementation of a set of electronic transaction standards (ETS) for election administration across the nation. According to the authors of the report, such a standard would allow election management systems to communicate seamlessly and share data to create a more accurate, cost-effective, and accessible election process and voting experience. Such a standard would enable state and local governments to adopt a modular approach to better integrate election management and voting products, make possible the development of truly integrated voter registration systems, and enhance the ability to conduct consistent and effective post-election audits of elections.
