Info on Administrative Rules
Security of Ballots and Memory Cards
At a November 2008 meeting, the GAB had a public hearing on security. Paul Malischke presented comments on securing Election Management Systems (EMS), among other issues. Since then, staff has made no visible progress towards promulgating an administrative rule on security of ballots and voting systems.
At a May 5, 2008 GAB meeting, the Wisconsin GAB approved a draft of an administrative rule on ballot and memory card security. The GAB ignored these comments from Paul Malischke. See our page on rules. The security rule is GAB 5.
Proper security is an essential factor in getting the vote count correct.
Background: In September 2007 Paul Malischke told the Board that the existing ballot security rules were pretty good, but no one was following them! He proposed amendments adding details of security methods, and also adding a check mechanism to make sure the rules were being followed.
