The self-contained AccuVote®-TSX provides election officials and voters with a proven and intuitive voting machine that automatically records and stores encrypted ballot information and election results. Each unit features intelligent voter card technology that allows a voter to activate the voting process unassisted. AccuVote®-TSX is accurate, lightweight, and cost-effective.


Voting Machine Security Data security and foreign policy analysts talked about the findings of a DEF CON report on the vulnerabilities of voting machines and other election equipment used throughout the U.S. DEF CON is an annual conference held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada. In this discussion the panelists focused on the broader national security implications following reports of Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Speakers included DEF CON founder Jeff Moss and Douglas Lute, a former U.S. ambassador to NATO.
This event was co-hosted by DEF CON and the Atlantic Council.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
