Cellphone voting
Online

Earlier this year, the Oregon State Legislature was considering adoption of bill HB 4136, which would have required the Secretary of State to establish a digital voting system allowing voters to cast their ballots electronically—via a computer, electronic tablet, cellphone, or another digital device.

The measure remained in committee and never came to a vote, but legislators may be planning to introduce a new version of the bill in next year's longer session.

Should you be happy or concerned about the prospect of cellphone voting?

Currently, over twenty pilot programs are in place across the country to test the feasibility of mobile voting. Proponents argue that cellphone voting could increase voter turnout, and voting from the comfort of your mobile phone sounds easy, right? But is it really a good idea?

Before giving this technology a stamp of approval, we need to consider some of the issues around the process of electronic voting. For example, is it secure? Does it protect voter privacy? And how would we verify election results?

Dr. Stephanie Singer and Sheila Golden have been focused on election systems for many years. Ms. Golden is well known in Oregon for her advocacy around election technology, while Dr. Singer is known nationwide for her expertise on election technology and processes. They'll join us this month to explore the pros and cons of voting via cellphone and will explain how such a system would work, who's behind the effort to adopt mobile voting, and why voting from our phones may or may not be a good course of action.

Bring your questions, and come learn how you can make your voice heard on this issue!

Please RSVP via Meetup or by sending an email to [email protected].

Speaker bios:

Sheila Golden is an activist focusing on election integrity, civil liberties/immigrant rights, and climate justice. She works with the League of Women Voters-OR and Scrutineers.

Stephanie Singer is a data scientist and former election official. She has assembled, analyzed and explained data for private business, public agencies, campaigns and election oversight. Her public service projects have been funded by the National Science Foundation and the Knight Foundation. In 2020 she created the VoteVisualizer, a web app allowing users to explore election results from across the country. Her client list includes the Orange County Registrar of Voters and the nonpartisan nonprofit Verified Voting. She has advised elected officials across the country, including Oregon Secretary of State Shemia Fagan. From 2012-2016 she served on the Philadelphia County Board of Elections -- including one year as chair -- where she made data freely available, used data analysis to fight unconstitutional burdens on the voting process, and introduced "I Voted Today" stickers to all Philadelphia polling places. She won the post by defeating a 36-year incumbent in a citywide election. Singer co-chaired the statewide Election Reform Committee of the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania. Singer studied math and computer science at Yale and Stanford, completed a Ph.D. at New York University and earned tenure from Haverford College. She has written two books on mathematical physics.

Calagator: Code Sprint
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

We'll be having another code sprint this Saturday at CubeSpace,
starting at 10AM. Now that we've started regularly re-importing
feeds, we have more to do to handle duplicates and get the import/ export process running as efficiently as possible. There's also
writing up a "Guide to Calagator" as Igal discussed, to help us get
more groups sending data, and identifying any additional sources we
can import at this time.

...

I'd heartily invite non-programmers and those that haven't gone to many code sprints to join us for this session. You can really help us out even if you join us for part of the day.

Calagator is now ready enough that we can recommend it to many additional local groups. We need to discuss how to best approach, assist and involve them.

A "Guide to Calagator" article will help us explain to community leaders what Calagator is about, how it can help them, and how they can use it. It'll need to be written in plain, clear English with minimum jargon or fuss. We'll need writers.

But don't worry, there will be plenty of programming too. ;)

See you there.

Calagator mini code sprint
Urban Grind Coffee House

NOTICE: Unlike usual sprints, this would be at noon, not 10m, and at UGNW, not CubeSpace.

I'd like to have a mini code sprint this weekend. Everyone is welcome, no programming experience required, although it'd be useful.

UGNW is near the Streetcar, so getting there even in bad weather should work okay.

We can talk about what we want to do with recurring events, the with_my_events branch, supporting multiple regions, supporting multiple instances, and supporting categories. We may even get some coding done too. :)

Reservation System Code Sprint
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

Starting at the Calagator Documentation Sprint, we will plan out how to build a separate reservation system for Calagator. This will be an entirely new-code project to build a system to maintain reservations for calagator events. Discussion to be had as to whether to store data in calagator and use this as a frontend, store data in the new reservation system and provide an API for Calagator to use to save reservations, or something completely different.

This will probably be written in Python+Django.

Calagator is an all-volunteer, open-source project to develop a calendar aggregation system for the Portland technical community. For further details about the project, see calagator.org

The Calagator team has made excellent headway since we've started this project a few months ago. I'm pleased to announce our preliminary roadmap to version 1.0: http://code.google.com/p/calagator/wiki/Roadmap

If you're a designer, writer, or programmer, we could use your help in designing new UIs, writing documentation, and adding interesting features.

We have two code sprints coming up: 1. Wednesday 6/18 at Backspace, from noon until it's time to leave for Ignite Portland. 2. Saturday 6/21 at CubeSpace, from 10am until 6pm, although we often end up moving to the Side Door and staying later.

You do not need to stay for the entire code sprint -- stay as long as you'd like. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if you haven't attended a code sprint before. If you want to help with programming, experience with Ruby on Rails and agile development is helpful, but you're welcome to come even if you're new to these because this is a great way to learn.
