ELECTION AUDIT SUMMIT
Since the 2016 election, concern over the integrity of the computer systems that manage elections in the United States has increased—making it increasingly important to identify and prevent attempts to subvert the effective administration of elections. Now more than ever, it is critical for the scientific and election administration communities to cooperate in developing and implementing strategies for doing so.
The Election Audit Summit, run by the MIT-Caltech Voting Technology Project and supported by the MIT Election Data & Science Lab, will provide a space for cross-discipline discussion of new strategies in the field of post-election auditing. Participants will explore key issues and perspectives from across the scientific, policy, and legal worlds, and contribute to advancing our collective knowledge and dialogue.
Over two days, the summit will feature two dozen contributors, panelists, and discussants from a range of backgrounds in lively conversation on the current status and future directions of election audits.
