Purpose of the Voting System Certification Committee
The Voting System Certification Committee (VSCC) was created for the purpose of ensuring that all voting systems used in elections that are covered under the NM Election Code comply all statutory requirements. Each voting system used in NM is reviewed and certified by the VSCC. The VSCC also has the ability to decertify antiquated systems and ensures uniformity statewide. Each meeting of the VSCC is considered an open meeting and is conducted in accordance with the Open Meetings Act [Chapter 10, Article 15 NMSA 1978].
