Roadmap for CA Elections & OVF Summit

January 27, 2012

Hi Folks,

I hope your new year is off to a great start! I'm in Washington, D.C. this week to give a keynote address at the Overseas Vote Foundation's annual Summit Friday. I'll be discussing the need to expand voter access to tools that enable participation while also protecting voter data privacy. More details about the OVF summit are online (and my remarks will be posted later on the CVF homepage).

Last year I participated in the "Future of California Elections" convening, organized by the James Irvine Foundation to bring a number of people working in California elections together to come up with a shared vision for improving elections and voter participation in our state. The final "roadmap" is posted on CVF's web site, and the 10 principles are listed below. We at CVF are looking forward to working with others to further the principles and goals in this plan.
