E-Voting Forum, Santa Cruz, Oct 2003

Working Groups
Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility

A Forum on Electronic Voting was held on October 26, 2003 at the Baskin School of Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz. It was cosponsored by CPSR, and the UCSC student chapters of the IEEE and ACM. It included presentations from:

  • Prof. David Dill, Computer Science, Stanford University

  • Warren Slocum, Chief Elections Officer and Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder, San Mateo County

  • Assemblyman Joe Simitian, 21st Assembly District

  • Alan Dechert, Open Voting Consortium

  • Marion Taylor, League of Women Voters, (videotaped presentation)

  • Robert Kibrick, Presentation of Open Letter to League of Women Voters U.S.

  • Ryan Coonerty, National Commission on Federal Election Reform

  • Prof. Arthur Keller, ISTM, University of California - Santa Cruz, Host and Moderator

The forum was open to the general public, and about 50 people attended in person. Although the forum was scheduled from 12:30 to 5:00 p.m., due to the high level of audience participation, it lasted until 6:30 p.m. The forum was also carried live over the UCSC campus cable TV system and it was videotaped. The videotape will be broadcast over Santa Cruz County Community Television in December and will also be made available to interested parties. We hope to make a digital version available online once an appropriate server can be found. Further details about these options will be posted to the Forum website:
