On Tuesday, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla certified Los Angeles County’s Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) Tally Version 1.0, making it the first publicly-owned, open-source election tally system certified under the California voting systems standards.

“With security on the minds of elections officials and the public, open-source technology has the potential to further modernize election administration, security, and transparency,” said Secretary of State Alex Padilla. “Los Angeles County’s VSAP vote tally system is now California’s first certified election system to use open-source technology. This publicly-owned technology represents a significant step in the future of elections in California and across the country.”

As part of the certification process, the system went through rigorous functional and security testing conducted by the Secretary of State’s staff and a certified voting system test lab. The testing ensured the system’s compliance with California and federal laws, including the California Voting System Standards (CVSS).

The certification of the VSAP Tally solution now allows Los Angeles County to move forward with its newly redesigned VSAP Vote by Mail (VBM) ballots for the Nov. 6, 2018 General Election.

“This is a significant milestone in our efforts to implement a new voting experience for the voters of Los Angeles County,” said Dean C. Logan, Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk. “The VSAP Tally System will ensure that new Vote by Mail ballots cast in the upcoming November election will be counted accurately and securely.”

The RR/CC will begin issuing the newly redesigned VBM packets on Oct. 9. The packets will include a new, easy-to-use full-face ballot, return envelope, secrecy sleeve and an “I Voted” sticker. And no postage will be required on the return envelope.

The newly designed VBM is the first step in implementing a new voting experience for LA County voters that is more accessible and convenient. To learn more about further changes coming to Los Angeles County in 2020 through the Voter’s Choice Act, visit VotersChoice.sos.ca.gov or vsap.lavote.net.

    They just better leave a paper trail so we can manually recount if needed. I don’t trust anybody with my vote.

  2. Malcolm Dann Malcolm Dann says:

    All the easier to get illegal votes counted…

  3. TeamSCV says:

    Better to protect us from the Russians interfering again.. Sick and tired of it!

  4. And there are plenty in california..vomit

  5. Mat Bats Mat Bats says:

    California is going to be corrupt regardless Of votes. Still tho’ Trump won even in California ☺️ send the illegals back to thier motherland where they belong. If an illegal voted they must get jail time and be deported. 🎅 The wizard has spoken

    • Denny NNWofLA says:

      2016 CA presidential election results:
      Hillary Clinton 62+%
      Donald Trump 32-%
      Tired of winning yet, Wizard?

      No person is illegal but some are not very bright, Mat. Why would an undocumented person risk losing his or her family by being deported over a vote?

      • Jeanne says:

        Hey Denny you are not too bright either. Mat meant that no matter how California voted President Trump
        still won and is President of California.

  6. California, Good 👋

  7. Mandy Day Mandy Day says:

    Supposedly concerned over election integrity but don’t bother asking for ID. Illegals going to turn every district blue. This state belong to Mexico or America?

  8. Jeanne says:

    The Russians didn’t change one vote. They tried to influence people with propaganda. Gee, I never though Boris and Natasha would do that! Come on, they have ALWAYS tried to do that. Social Media makes it easier that’s all.
    That said we do need to worry about anybody trying to physically change votes even Americans. As you can see in Chicago the past few decades voter fraud is practiced regularly.

    • Dave Rickmers says:

      Chicago? 19 freaking 60?

      A few thousand alleged dead people voting is nothing compared to the systematic antidemocratic crimes of Kris Koback of Kansas. California requires ID to register to vote. Who’d risk prison time to vote illegally? What’s the payoff?
