ElectionGuard is an open-source solution not intended to be administrated by Microsoft but instead empowers organizations and voters. The ElectionGuard toolkit can be used in new and old voting systems alike and enables voters to check on their own if all votes that were cast are valid and accurately tallied. Being open-source, it does not compromise security or secrecy and does not rely on one particular software. How this solution works is a voter casts a ballot and is presented with a tracking code. At home, they can use said code to verify online that their vote was counted.
