In 2016, San Francisco's Mayor and Board of Supervisors approved funding to study the development of open source voting technology for San Francisco’s elections. The project’s goal is to design and implement an open source paper ballot voting system, replacing the proprietary systems currently in use.

The Elections Committee formed a Technical Advisory Committee (OSVTAC) to assist in the overall process. If the project is successful, it would be the first such system anywhere.

The OSVTAC has addressed voting procedures, government agencies, contracting, software development processes, and open source software. Meeting minutes and recommendations are available on https://osvtac.github.io.

The city's IT Department has hired technical and management leadership to oversee the planning and implementation of the system, and the project has received $3M in funding.

This session gives a status report on the project, including a description of the OSVTAC recommendations for the system.
