GSU Professor Speaks on Election Integrity at MIT

GSU’s William Kresse recently spoke to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Election Audit Summit, sponsored by the Caltech-MIT Voting Technology Project.

Since the 2016 election, concern over the integrity of the computer systems that manage elections in the United States has increased—making it increasingly important to identify and prevent attempts to subvert the effective administration of elections.

The summit provided a space for engineers, social scientists, legal scholars, election officials, and the public to discuss the new strategies that are developing in the field of post-election auditing. Participants explored key issues and perspectives from across the scientific, policy, and legal worlds, contributing to the advancement of our collective knowledge and dialogue.

Kresse is an Assistant Professor in the GSU College of Business and a Commissioner with the Chicago Board of Elections.
