OpaVote’s 2024 HECVAT Lite Assessment Now Available

OpaVote is trusted by many higher-education institutions to run elections and polls -- from board, senate, and committee elections to approval of resolutions and rules changes.

As part of our commitment to secure and reliable online voting, and our dedication to making choosing OpaVote as streamlined as possible for institutional IT departments, we're thrilled to announce that OpaVote has completed its first HECVAT Lite assessment.

The HECVAT Lite assessment is a security assessment toolkit designed for colleges and universities, and is applicable beyond just education.

Security is paramount in voting systems, and a HECVAT Lite assessment from your online voting provider demonstrates how they’ve taken steps to preserve the integrity of democratic elections on their platform.

Election managers can request OpaVote’s HECVAT Lite documentation to verify the cybersecurity controls, policies, and procedures we have in place to protect sensitive institutional and constituent information.
