3. Hey Brad!
Voting Technology Seminar to examine election integrity
September 27, 2011

Produced by the CalTech/MIT Voting Technology Project (VTP), this one-day seminar on Saturday, Oct. 1, will bring together leading figures to examine the past, present and future of election integrity.

All stakeholders in the electoral process are welcome and encouraged to attend this free event, which takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the Stata Center. To register, visit Voting Technology Project.

Panelists will look at issues that first aroused concern about use of computers in public elections, then assess the current situation, and future directions for enhancing election integrity. The goal is to increase dialogue among election administrators, citizens, technical professionals, academics and vendors.

The VTP was established by former MIT President Charles Vest and Caltech President David Baltimore to help prevent a recurrence of the problems that jeopardized the 2000 U.S. presidential election. The group studies all aspects of the election process, in both the United States and abroad.

I don't know if you can get there - it's awfully short notice, but maybe you have contacts that can attend this seminar. Sounds interesting.
