dbo:abstract
  • Voatz is a for-profit, private mobile election voting application. The stated mission of Voatz is to "make voting not only more accessible and secure, but also more transparent, auditable and accountable." The company is headquartered in Brookline, Massachusetts. It was revealed in October 2019 that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had launched an investigation into the attempt to hack Voatz during the 2018 midterm elections. Computer science students at the University of Michigan may have been involved with the case. FBI investigators are speculating that the motive behind the attempted hack into the Voatz app may have been for a class assignment, rather than to alter votes. Voatz has seen substantial criticism from security experts. Voatz has received additional criticism for not being transparent with their auditing process; although Voatz claims it has been subjected to security audits by independent technology firms, it has not been forthcoming with the results. For example, when reporters have reached out to auditors they did not hear back, and Voatz has insisted that these same companies sign non-disclosure agreements prior to investigating the company. Voatz was created by Nimit Sawhney in 2014, and was developed as a side project at a SXSW hackathon. As of October 2019, the startup has conducted over 31 pilots and completed a $7 million Series A in June. (en)
