e-voting seminar, Mexico City, tomorrow
If anybody is interested or can attend: Tomorrow and the day after (Wednesday and Thursday 12-13/05/2010) FLACSO (a leading Social Sciences faculty spanning countries all over Latin America) and IFE (Mexico’s federal electoral authority) are presenting a seminar on e-voting: Electronic vote experiences in Mexico and around the world.
Sadly, I will be unable to attend, as I will be on the road once again (Ecuador!). However, I hope those among my readers who are interested in the topic can attend — or at least follow the audio and video transmission from the IFE website.
The seminar will be held at IFE’s auditorium — Viaducto Tlalpan No. 100, Col. Arenal Tepepan, Delegación Tlalpan, c.p. 14610, México, DF.
[update] If you don’t know what is my stand on this topic (and can read Spanish), please <a href=http://gwolf.org/content/voto-electronico”>read this short article</a>. In short: I am against e-voting, and hope we are still in time (and can push at the right places) to avoid it becoming the rule in our country.

Some notes about e-voting
I’m against e-voting too: I explained why in Is E-Voting a solution? To which problem?
On a different note, looking forward to continue the discussions we had after meeting at the 2008 UPS Congress in Quito.
