EPIC has filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Department of Defense for records detailing the security of online voting. The agency administers the Federal Voting Assistance Program, which has promoted online voting and provided funding to states for internet voting technology. Computer scientists have expressed concern about the reliability of these systems and privacy risks for voters. At a Congressional hearing in 2012, the agency promised to release the results of security tests it had conducted on voting software by December 2012. Because the agency has failed to make the test results public, EPIC has demanded these results, as well as related documents, be disclosed.
