Who Voted is Free Software

Free software is software that can be used, studied, and modified without restriction, and which can be copied and redistributed in modified or unmodified form either without restriction, or with restrictions only to ensure that further recipients can also do these things. To make these acts possible, the human readable form of the program (called the source code) must be made available. The source code can be placed in the public domain, accompanied by a software license saying that the copyright holder permits these acts (a free software licence), etc. [from Wikipedia]

To view or enhance the source code that runs the Who Voted website, please see the project's SourceForge Page.

About the Contributors

The Who Voted website was conceived by Todd Davies while he was the President of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility (CPSR). CPSR is a global organization promoting the responsible use of computer technology.

Google Summer of Code, a program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects, provided the means for CPSR to get the project off the ground by providing Who Voted's first student developer, Jeffrey Gerard, in 2007. The project was supervised by Gordon Lyon, Todd Davies, and Annalee Newitz. In early 2008, control of the Who Voted project was transfered by the CPSR Board to Todd Davies, and the site is now hosted as a research project in the Symbolic Systems Program, Stanford University, where Davies is Associate Director. In the summer of 2008, Reid Chandler, a student in Symbolic Systems at Stanford, joined the project as a researcher and developer. The views expressed on the Who Voted website are solely those of the research team (Todd Davies, Jeffrey Gerard, Reid Chandler, and Gordon Lyon), and do not represent those of Stanford University, CPSR, or Google.

The HTML website layout is loosely based on an Open Source Web Design template created by Technology Directory.
