Wheat Ridge, CO (April 13, 2021) – SLI Compliance® was one of two Voting System Test Laboratories (VSTL) recently selected to perform a forensic audit of Maricopa County, AZ’s 2020 election results. The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in January 2021 to authorize the forensic audit of ballot tabulation equipment; the culmination of a year-long effort to ensure the accuracy of the voting hardware and software used in the county elections.
SLI Compliance’s five member VSTL team performed analysis of election equipment software and hardware’s hacking vulnerability, verified that no malicious software was installed, tested tabulators to ensure there was no information being sent or received via internet, and confirmed that there was no vote switching that had occurred.
The results of SLI Compliance’s audit were that the election was sound, and votes were counted properly during the 2020 general election. Maricopa County’s election equipment and software passed all tests performed by the SLI Compliance VSTL team:
