Core Course 102: Ethics: Data, Partisan Politics and the Public
January 8, 2019
4 p.m.– 7 p.m
Boards of Elections house substantial data, including personal identifying information. One aspect of this class will deal with the ethical and legal aspects of handling that data. Additionally, board members and election staff operate in a pseudo-political environment which can lead to “interesting” ethical situations. Finally, boards of elections interact with the public every day. How do election officials interact with the public, candidates and the press in a way that balances political interests and promotes voter confidence?
