The video of the LWVW Opening Meeting, held on October 16, 2018 at the Wellesley Free Library, is now available! Our guest speaker, Barbara Bluestein Simons, a voting cyber security expert, gave a very information talk about election security in which she promoted three security measures:
- Voter-marked paper balloting
- Strong chain of custody of the ballots
- Risk-limited ballot auditing which involves using statistics to deteremine how many ballots need to be counted to establish the winner of a race to within a specified confidence level and then counting those (paper) ballots by hand.
Many thanks go to James Joyce of Wellesley Public Media who filmed the presentation and to Barbara Simons who gave us her time and expertise in a very interesting and informative talk.
