Election Security Fact Sheet


Decentralized Elections in Florida

  • Each of Florida's 67 counties maintains their own local voter registration database and voting system. There is no single point of entry to affect the outcome.

 

Paper Ballots Only

  • All voters in Lee County cast their vote using a paper ballot, which allows for a full audit of an election.

 

Network Security

  • Voter registration database and vote tabulation database are maintained independently on separate networks for a full reconciliation of ballots cast versus total voter turnout.
  • The tabulation server is held in a closed network with no internet access.
  • Office software patches and updates are installed as they become available.
  • Numerous cyber-security systems, software, and procedures are in place, which includes active monitoring and intrusion detection.

 

Pre-Election Testing

  • Lee County uses only state and federally certified voting systems to tabulate ballots.
  • Every piece of equipment used in an election is tested thoroughly prior to the election.
  • The logic and accuracy testing (L&A) of the voting system is held during a public meeting of the Canvassing Board.

 

Results Reporting

  • Rigorous ballot reconciliation procedures compare the number of ballots and voters throughout the process and apply to all voting methods including vote-by-mail ballots, and those cast during early voting and on Election Day.

 

Post-Election Audit

  • After each election, the Canvassing Board randomly selects one race and one precinct to be audited during a public meeting. A manual, hand count of the ballots is compared to the machine totals.
