On December 7 and 8, 2018, The Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project (VTP) hosted the Multidisciplinary Conference on Election Auditing, or “Election Audit Summit,” for short, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The conference was organized by a small group of academics and practitioners from across the United States. Inspired by the groundswell of interest in risk-limiting audits and other rigorous methods to ensure that elections are properly administered, the conference assembled an eclectic mix of academics, election officials, and members of the public to explore these issues. The essays in this report briefly summarize many of the presentations made at the Audit Summit, while the first chapter ties together the themes of the Summit into one package.
