Announcing The Ballot Integrity Project

I’m proud to announce a new project we’ve been working on at the Arizona State Capitol called the “Arizona Ballot Integrity Project”, a full-spectrum transparency project to give Arizona voters confidence in their elections.

Ballot integrity, a critical part of the election process, relies on fraud countermeasures to keep the fakes out of the system. Election integrity – more broadly – relies on full-spectrum transparency. We can have full-spectrum transparency by making every ballot image a public record, available to everyone, all the time. Putting sunshine on something is a great disinfectant, and there is no reason not to do this.

The U.S. Treasury relies on currency-grade fraud countermeasures. Meaning they have UV light-reactive bills, from the dollar bill, to the five, to the ten, even to the hundred. You’ll notice stripes, fluorescence, all manner of countermeasures. And after all, aren’t our ballots just as valuable as our money?

Watch my video below showcasing our brand new, ultra-secure paper ballot, and explaining how its state-of-the-art security features will prevent fraud and help restore faith in our elections.
