Key Considerations: Decision on Adoption

For Implementing Bodies 

  • Is the decision to adopt counting or voting technologies based on the successful conduct of a series of pilots in different locations or over a period of time?
  • Have lessons learned from pilots been acknowledged in the decision?
  • Are the reasons for recommending adoption, additional piloting or non-adoption of technologies well-documented and made public?
  • Where adoption has been recommended, has detailed guidance been provided as to the kinds of technology that should be used, technical specifications, implementation steps and a timeline for adoption?

For Oversight Actors

  • Are the reasons for recommending adoption, additional piloting or non-adoption of technologies well-documented and made public?
  • If decision to adopt is made, is it based on successful pilots in different locations and/or over a period of time? Has the decision taken into account lessons from pilots?
  • Is the preliminary recommendation discussed (i.e., through consultations) with key stakeholders?
