FLORIDA ELECTIONS IN THE SUNSHINE
We believe that imprecise voter rolls, coupled with inordinate vote-by-mail practices, are a recipe for lawless elections. Our goal is strong and lasting voter confidence, resting on a foundation of election information accuracy, transparency, and accountability.
How government is supposed to operate...
The legislative body introduces and passes laws that reflect the will of The People
The executive branch writes regulations that prescribe how the laws must be followed
The administrative apparatus creates policies that must adhere to the regulations
The administrators write and execute procedures that must adhere to policies
Misinformation | \ ˌmis-ˌin-fər-ˈmā-shən | "The blockade of election information, preventing the ability of the electorate to confirm that election procedures are administered in adherence to the law."
In the Age of Information, data powers the world. Florida's election offices contract vendor systems technology to help manage voter information and election procedures. But these vendors store our election data in digital "black boxes". When The People of Florida request to inspect and oversee the administration of elections, as is rightfully granted to them by law, unaccountable non-governmental associations and their vendors of choice block access and transparency.
By law, Floridians have the right to obtain all records created by the voter and the election staff (barring minimal exempt information). This denial of public records is a grave threat to voter confidence, and a clear violation of Florida's Sunshine Laws as legislated in Florida Statute 119.01.
This must end in 2023!
To modernize and increase election transparency, oversight, and citizen inclusion in governance, the Florida Legislature shall pass election reforms and corresponding appropriations that mandate the Department of State to build and maintain an Elections Compliance Engine that serves as a control system and a gateway to public access and transparency.
All election vendor contracts shall be co-signed by the Florida Department of State (DOS), granting the DOS full access to all local level election data.
Election vendor systems shall mirror all data from the local county Supervisors of Elections (SOE) with the DOS' information storage systems. Failure to do so will result in the decertification and prohibition of the vendor system from use in Florida elections.
The DOS shall build and own all code for a Compliance Engine that accesses all of Florida's election data, and regularly process system control rules that identify, alert, and escalate any and all maladministration of election laws to the attention of DOS officials.
The DOS shall publish an online portal that provides reports from the Compliance Engine. This also includes DOS staff who are dedicated to fulfilling custom records requests.
HOW IT WORKS
The Compliance Engine runs programmatic rules to monitor elections administration and procedures. This includes entry-to-exit events, from voter registration to tabulation. Managed by the DOS, the engine will automatically alert, escalate, and ensure precision and transparency of election systems and data.
