    2017 Take Back The Vote Election Integrity Conference

    21. Evidence-based Elections

    It’s not enough to simply say who won. There should be evidence-based elections with provable chain of custody in an election, rules and regulations for every step, ballot manifests, etc. Currently risk-limiting audits are the gold standard in election audits. Philip B. Stark is Professor of Statistics and Associate Dean of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the originator of risk-limiting audits, a rigorous method for ensuring that tabulation errors did not affect reported election outcomes–or correcting the outcomes if they are incorrect. He has worked closely with state and local election officials in California, Colorado, and Texas on audits, voting systems, legislation, and other issues related to election integrity. He won the John Gideon award for Election Integrity from the Election Verification Network and the Chancellor’s Award for Research in the Public Interest for his work on election audits. He is on the Board of Advisors of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission and on the Board of Directors of Verified Voting Foundation.
