Other things I've written recently:
1) EFF's electronic monitoring guide https://www.eff.org/pages/electronic-monitoring
2) a piece on automated license reader use in Arizona https://www.azmirror.com/2019/07/08/arizona-police-agencies-gather-share-license-plate-data-but-few-ensure-rules-are-being-followed/
3) co-wrote this piece on how cheap cattle grazing is in Arizona: https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-investigations/2019/07/07/cattle-grazing-arizona-public-school-education-funding-state-trust-land/1367665001/
4) I was quoted in an FPF piece on why more journalism schools aren't teaching digital security https://freedom.press/news/why-arent-more-journalism-schools-teaching-security-hygiene/
It's also not currently possible for voters to check their vote in the blockchain to make sure it’s actually there and says what they intended.
Anyway, you can read the piece here: https://slate.com/technology/2019/07/west-virginia-blockchain-voting-voatz.html
Voatz says its WV pilot was audited, but failed to name any of the auditors, the scope of the tests conducted, what the auditors had access to, how long they had to perform the tests, what vulns were discovered, the severity of those vulns, and whether or not they were fixed.
One big concern with mobile/blockchain voting is the inability to conduct a tabulation audit with a piece of paper that you know reflects the voter's intent, without compromising the anonymity of the voter.
I wrote about Voatz's mobile/#blockchain voting experiment last year for
Future Tense. It’s impossible to tell how things went, because the state and the company aren’t sharing the basic information experts say is necessary to properly evaluate it. https://slate.com/technology/2019/07/west-virginia-blockchain-voting-voatz.html
