Election security: How hackable are Oregon's vote scanners?

Northwest Academy
1130 SW Main Street
Portland, OR 97205, USA (map)

The meeting will be in the Century building at 1208 SW 13th Ave, on the 2nd floor. When coming up 13th, there is an entrance to a surface lot behind our building. We're in the 2-story building (not the 5-story building). The lot should be empty at meeting time. Park anywhere except in the auction winner’s spot. If the the lot is full, use the lot behind the 5-story building.



As Oregonians know, our state has a mail-in voting system, where all ballots are cast either by mail or by dropping them into collection boxes available throughout the area. But, what happens to your ballot after election workers pick it up, and how do you know that your vote will actually be counted?

Sheila Golden has researched the use of optical scanners in scanning our ballots and will report her findings as to the accuracy of the scanners and the results of the vote tally systems. She'll also update us on the current status of legislative efforts to ensure valid election results in the state of Oregon.

Join us for a great presentation and discussion! We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!

Schedule: 6:00 PM: Doors 6:10 PM: Introductions and news 6:15 PM: Presentation 7:15 PM: Q&A 7:30 PM: Wrap up and networking
