This whitepaper for the Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC) identifies desirable security properties of remote electronic voting systems, potential benefits and threats to these systems, and current and emerging technical approaches for mitigating risks. It is intended for election officials, technologists, advocacy groups, UOCAVA voting system vendors, and other members of the elections community that will be working with the EAC, NIST, and the FVAP on improving the UOCAVA voting process with the use of electronic technologies.
