Speaker

David Mertz

David Mertz

CTO, Open Voting Consortium

Dr. Mertz is a board member and CTO of the Open Voting Consortium and serves on IEEE Standards Committee P1622 on data formats for voting systems. After receiving his doctorate in political philosophy, David became a well-known author in the seemingly little related areas of computer science and programming, and in information security. He feels that procedural democracy requires that the technical instruments of governance be open for public inspection, every bit as much as it requires the legal acts of government remain so open.
