TravCo clerk talks elections

Tuesday, April 3, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

Last week, Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir was a panelist at the Holder Initiative’s “American Voter Project: Hacking Digital Elections” discussion, which took place at Columbia University. During the discussion, DeBeauvoir talked about voting systems (digital and registration) and stated her belief that, in the words of a press release about the panel, “she is confident that in recent elections, there was no evidence of direct manipulation of election results or voting systems by an outside entity, but that there is a reason to believe that outside entities did ‘hack’ the democratic process.” Those interested in hearing the full discussion about securing elections between DeBeauvoir and former Attorney General Eric Holder, Dr. Malek Ben Salem of Accenture and professor Jeannette Wing of Columbia University can check out the entire panel discussion, which is embedded below.
