    • Here are some key facts that you, as a Texas voter, should know when it comes to the Security of our voting systems:

      (1) Voting machines in Texas are never connected to the internet

      (2) Only the software that the state certifies can be loaded on voting equipment; and

      (3) All voting machines in Texas are tested for logic and accuracy three times – twice before the election, and once immediately after the election

    • Texas Election Code Sec. 129.023

      • The first test must be held publicly more than 48 hours before voting begins, and public notice of the test must be posted at least 48 hours in advance.
      • The county testing board - which includes representatives of political parties and members of the public - must agree on a test deck of ballots for which the results are already verified through a hand count.
      • The ballots included in the test deck must include votes for each candidate and proposition on the ballot, overvotes and undervotes, write-in votes and provisional votes.
      • The testing board votes the ballots on the electronic voting machines, recreating the choices from the original test deck.
      • The voted ballots are then tabulated, and the testing board meets to verify the results from the hand count and machine count are identical.
      • Voting machines can only be deployed in a Texas election after the test shows 100% accuracy.
