Improving election auditing requires improved processes. New verification schemes must not make the system less trustworthy by making it easier for people to change records or claim that equipment is not working properly. New solutions for verification must also be tested and shown to improve voting. In this Policy Forum, alternatives for the improvement of auditing and election equipment are discussed, as well as a call for a halt to legislative changes that will mandate untested approaches.
