In Oregon, the Secretary of State's office manages Voting, Elections, and the Business Registry. Among other things, that means they capture and manage data to account for every dollar in Oregon's political campaigns and every vote cast across our state.

It's no secret that data is an increasingly integral part of 21st-century government. How is Oregon adapting to an evolving technology landscape when it comes to information and technology?

At a time that seems pivotal for transparency and citizen inclusion, let's talk about the opportunities and challenges of open data on our democratic process.

Larry Morgan is the Citizen Engagement and Inclusion Coordinator for Oregon Secretary of State, Dennis Richardson. He is also the youngest elected official in the City of Troutdale's history and the first person of color to serve on it's City Council.

Hack Oregon's Civic Lab is made up of Oregon's brightest coders, creatives, government leaders, and community members working together to discover the invisible stories of our civic life.

We're hosting three months of curated workshops, build sessions, and guest speakers all leading toward one goal: a radically new open data portal for the City of Portland. Built by the people, for the people.
