WHAT THEY DO - ITAA ENTERPRISE SOLUTIONS DIVISION

"The ES Division has championed many key reforms on behalf of its members, including procurement reform on both the state and federal level, led education initiatives to raise awareness of the information security issues in the government and commercial sectors, and worked to augment the adoption of electronic commerce applications at the state and federal level. We do this through a vertical committee structure which allows division members to work together, exchange ideas, and develop solutions to common problems. "

IS THIS THE ELECTION CENTER AGENDA? - ELECTION CENTER ON INTERNET VOTING

Internet Voting Overview

A Message from R. Doug Lewis, Executive Director of The Election Center

One of the hottest topics in elections today is the potential use of the Internet for voting purposes. The subject engenders much passion in some quarters and supporters and opponents seem to be of widely divergent opinions on whether its widespread use for voting is "just around the corner."

The Election Center neither supports nor opposes use of the Internet for voting. It is simply another technology. Like other technologies which offered to "revolutionize" the way we vote, it may or may not ultimately have a place in American elections. The papers or reports presented at this site are from responsible government election officials who have studied the issue. They are presented as food for thought by the elections profession.

We have supported the limited tests of Internet voting that are planned or have been conducted because we believe some testing is necessary to determine all the right questions to ask.

Our task, at The Election Center and within the elections profession, is:

Sounds like a "Tall Order" doesn't it? Actually, these are the same kinds of concerns that go into the evaluation of any method offered for voting. Elections administration concerns itself with the safety, security, accessibility, integrity, and cost questions for every election conducted in America. And while we cannot always help the public to have the right perception of the electoral process, we cannot ignore public perception.

Over the course of the next year or so, we will be making available "white papers" and official studies by government bodies which explore the issues raised in potentially applying this new technology. While we want to hear your opinions and are willing to listen to a wide range of points of view, we cannot publish all the comments of those who wish to have a say in the subject.

We will limit the published papers to those who have responsibility for conducting elections, i.e., those government officials who have to administer the electoral process. While others may know the technology better than elections officials, they have not had the responsibility of conducting elections where the process must have an extraordinary level of accountability to assure the integrity of an election…and, ultimately, will be perceived by the public as being fair and honest.

Use our public message boards to express your opinions and views, or even to ask questions. If you are an official of an elections related governmental agency and have studied this issue and have developed an official report or study, then please send those to us and they will be listed at this site.

Gordon Campbell: On Vladimir Putin’s Wonderful, Fabulous, Very Good Year

Safe to say that no-one, but no-one has had a better 2016 than Vladimir Putin. What an annus mirabilis it has been for him.

Gordon Campbell: On The Media Normalisation Of Trump

We all supposedly agree that the media is going to hell in a tabloid handbasket, but the trends to the contrary can be a bit harder to spot. In his 1970s book The Right Stuff, Tom Wolfe had mocked the way the media instinctively acts as what he called The Victorian Gentleman. More>>
