Texas Election Administration Management (TEAM) System

What Is the TEAM System?

On October 29, 2002, President Bush signed HR 3295, the Help America Vote Act ("HAVA"). This federal legislation created many new mandates for state and local governments. One of the key provisions is that each "...state shall implement a uniform, official, centralized, interactive, computerized statewide voter registration list defined, maintained, and administered at the State level." The Texas Election Administration Management (TEAM) system is Texas' fulfillment of that mandate.

The TEAM system is a web-based, robust, secure, HAVA compliant system that meets HAVA requirements, with additional functions supporting election management, election night reporting, ballot certification and canvassing, and county jury wheel needs. New technologies such as document imaging and Geographic Information System (GIS) components will also be available. The TEAM system replaced the (non-HAVA compliant) Texas Voter Registration System (TVRS) in operation since 1996.

What does the TEAM System Offer?

Key features of the TEAM System include functionality for county and state election officials to maintain voter registration records, administer elections in all jurisdictions, execute and report election results. Additional features include jury wheel selection support from validated voter registrations, and a public voter website.
