VI. Tech Thursday
National Tech: The Hill has an article this week that looks into the concerns over a series of data breaches of voter information and what that could mean for the future. “It's time to treat such [voter] information as high-security government information,” David Maman, a cloud security expert with database security firm HexaTier told The Hill.
This week, Long Distance Voter officially became Vote.org. To go along with the change, they have rolled out a new voter registration tool and upgraded all their existing tools. On their site people will find a user-friendly voter registration tool, a voter verification tool and an easy-to-use absentee ballot request form.
Minnesota: The League of Women Voters of Minnesota have launched a new Your Vote Your Voice website. The website, funded by The Joyce Foundation, is designed as a resource for high school students. The site, a collaborative effort of 13 organizations, covers the history of voting rights from pre-Independence through the present.
