Congressional Briefings
Securing the Vote: Protecting American Democracy
During the 2016 presidential election, America’s election infrastructure was targeted by actors sponsored by the Russian government. This new report, from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, examines the challenges arising out of the 2016 federal election, assesses current technology and standards for voting, and recommends steps that the federal government, state and local governments, election administrators, and vendors of voting technology should take to improve the security of election infrastructure. In doing so, the report provides a vision of voting that is more secure, accessible, reliable, and verifiable.
These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on September 6, 2018 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
