This post from a talk show called The Take Away speaks with some highly educated people in the industry where they discuss on their podcast the importance of verified voting when dealing in the digital realm. The main topic of conversation lands on the audit-ability of the current system and what might be in development (Follow My Vote) to make digital voting more secure. It is important that we work together to allow our voters to have some form of verification for their vote confirming that their vote was registered correctly. All in all a great listen for anyone looking of more information on where we are, and where we may end up, in respect to online voting.
Yesterday, California Representative Eric Swalwell discussed his bill that would give Congress the power to connect remotely—whether members are casting votes or attending committee meetings.
Congressman Swalwell’s argument is a simple one: Technology can and should simplify the electoral process in this country. When it comes to voting in America, many of you agree that the system should utilize technology and become more accessible, but for some the thought is a scary one.
What will the future of voting in America look like? Weighing in is Ronald Rivest, a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT and a faculty member of the Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project.
