2012 (Duration 2 years)
Strengthening American Democracy
CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA — The Verified Voting Foundation works with election officials, technologists, the media, and the public to promote the accuracy, integrity and verifiability of elections, and to ensure that the voice of those who understand technology are at the table when decisions about the use of technology in elections are being made. Elections often turn on a few hundred votes, or fractions of a percent of the total vote, so malfunctions or deliberate compromise of even a small number of voting machines can change outcomes. This grant will support a nationwide effort to determine the security of election practices and voting machines now in use, and suggest appropriate remedies in time for the 2012 elections.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Verified Voting Foundation $300,000 between 2003 and 2013.
