RESOLUTION FOR OPEN SOURCE ELECTIONS- COUNTY PLEDGE

WHEREAS, public confidence in the integrity of the election system in the United States is declining; and voting machines and the computers that add vote totals are being run with computer programs or software that can substantially change vote totals in subtle ways that are difficult to detect; and

WHEREAS, we the people have the right to know exactly how votes are processed, to have transparent elections, and to have computer scientists analyze open source code for malicious code which could be used to manipulate elections; and

WHEREAS, proprietary computer software denies us this right to know, inner workings of the computerized vote counting hardware are secret; and there are now better methods available under the passage of SB-360 that will heighten transparency and increase security while reducing costs and

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Santa Clara County Democratic Party calls upon Santa Clara County and the San Clara County officials to pledge available resources toward the effort to create, certify and deploy publicly owned,open source election systems.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that copies of this resolution should be distributed to the California Democratic State and Federal delegation as well as the State's Democratic State Constitutional Officers.
