P1622.5 - Standard for Election Systems Usability and Accessibility

This standard facilitates the evaluation of the voting system user experience and, hence, the usability and accessibility performance of the voting systems without specifying detailed designs of the hardware and user interface. It sets forth requirements for designing usable and accessible systems that are specific for voting systems.This standard defines the requirements for usability and accessibility for voting systems. Voting systems include election administration systems, election management systems, vote capture devices, and tabulation devices that present voting information to voters, poll workers, election officials, and any other users. This standard specifies the requirements needed to make a voting system functional, acceptable, usable and accessible by all, including those with disabilities, while maintaining appropriate levels of voter security and confidentiality. The standard defines the user experience by leveraging user interface and interaction design best practices, existing accessible and universal design standards, and by examining workflow and user needs through human factors systems engineering.
