About Us

THE ELECTIONS TRANSPARENCY PROJECT has been verifying election results in Humboldt County, California since June of 2008.

Our goal is to provide a transparent means to verify the official ballot count and election outcomes.

THE ELECTIONS TRANSPARENCY PROJECT conducts post-election digital scans of all the ballots cast in each public, county-administered election in Humboldt County, California, in order to create a set of images of all the ballots cast. These images are created using scanning equipment that is entirely independent from the county’s regular voting equipment.  This set of images is then made publicly available so that anyone can count the votes cast.
