About Jordan Jarnagin

Jordan joined the Political Science Department in the Summer of 2019. He is the Election Systems Certification Specialist for the Voting System Technical Oversight Program (VSTOP) Team, which is part of the Bowen Center for Public Affairs.

The VSTOP team advises the Indiana Secretary of State and the Indiana Election Commission on the certification of voting machines and electronic poll books in Indiana. VSTOP helped pioneer first-in-the-nation legislation authorizing the certification and testing of electronic poll books before they are permitted to be used in elections in Indiana. The project also entails the creation of a database containing all voting machines used in Indiana as well as reports on the best practices for operation of election equipment and for poll worker training.
