Developing open source elections technology to serve as critical democracy infrastructure.
We’re a non-profit public benefits corporation led by a group of social entrepreneurs dedicated to sustaining technology development efforts that create freely available, open source U.S. election technology.
The OSDV Foundation’s flagship effort is the TrustTheVote Project - a digital public works project, creating freely available open source technology maintained in a public trust. Open source technology and practices are a key aspect of this public works project, and a critical ingredient to ensure transparency and trust.
All Foundation supported work is performed by a Core Technology Development Team, backed by a collaborative, open stakeholder community to ensure complete transparency, public review, comment and participation, in producing royalty-free publicly available results.
