MSRI/BCC present “Internet Voting: Wishful Thinking?”, 6:30 p.m., Wed., Sept. 16 at Berkeley City College

1 September 2015

Dr. Barbara Simons

“Internet Voting: Wishful Thinking?”, 6:30 p.m., Wed., Sept. 16 will address security threats to Internet voting.  The presentation also will also touch on online voter registration, online ballot marking systems and computerized voting in general.  The free and open to the public lecture takes place at Berkeley City College’s auditorium, 2050 Center St. between Shattuck Ave. & Milvia Sts.  Reserve your place at http://www.msri.org/general_events/21556.

Public opinion, combined with appeals on behalf of voters with disabilities, have created strong pressure to adopt Internet voting.  In the U.S. there is also concern about facilitating voting for members of the military and civilians living abroad. Consequently, Internet voting is currently being deployed in some states and considered by others.  Similar patterns exist in other countries, such as Australia and Canada.

Dr. Barbara Simons, presenter, is a former President of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the nation’s oldest and largest educational and scientific society for computing professionals. She is the only woman to have received the Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award from the College of Engineering at UC Berkeley, where she earned her Ph.D. in computer science.  A fellow of ACM and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, she also received the Computing Research Association Distinguished Service Award and the Electronic Frontier Foundation Pioneer Award.

An expert on electronic voting, she published Broken Ballots: Will Your Vote Count?, a book on voting machines co-authored with Douglas Jones. She was appointed to the Board of Advisors of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission in 2008 by Sen. Harry Reid, and she co-authored the report that led to the cancellation of the U.S. Department of Defense’s Internet voting project (SERVE) in 2004 because of security concerns.

She also was a member of the National Workshop on Internet Voting, convened by former President Bill Clinton, that conducted one of the first studies of Internet Voting and produced a report in 2001. She co-authored “The Future of Voting: End-to-End Verifiable Internet Voting,” the July 2015 report of the U.S. Vote Foundation. She is Board Chair of Verified Voting.
