BIDS Data Science Fellow Kellie Ottoboni has received the Election Verification Network's (EVN) Innovation Award for her work with BIDS Senior Fellow Philip Stark in developing the Stratified Union-Intersection Tests of Elections (SUITE) tool for use in the pilot of risk-limiting audits in Michigan in 2018. The SUITE tool is a Jupyter notebook that encompasses all of the key steps of a post-election risk-limiting audit: risk calculations, an estimate of the number of ballots to examine, and a procedure to sample and locate ballots.
Kellie received the award at the 2019 EVN Annual Conference (EVN 2019). The Election Verification Network is a professional society of election officials, researchers, and advocates committed to accurate, accessible, transparent, reliable, and verifiable elections. The EVN Innovation Award is given annually for path-breaking new product development that greatly facilitates robust election verification and auditing.
