Upcoming Meeting

October 11, 2022 @ 4:30pm – 6:00pm Q3: DAMA – Ballot Data Model: How Elections Work

In Harris County, Texas (which is approximately the City of Houston), for the November 6, 2018 election, David Hay was appointed an “Alternate Judge” to help oversee the voting process for a precinct.

Because the ballot for each precinct is different, the complexity of the whole set of registration, election district, contest, and results data for Harris County intrigued him, he did what he knew how to do best: he developed a “conceptual data model” to try to simplify that complexity. The drawings in this presentation, along with descriptions, constitute such a model.

David C Hay Bio: Since the early 1980s, David Hay has been a pioneer in the use of process and data models to support strategic planning, requirements analysis and system design. He has developed enterprise models for many industries, including, among others, pharmaceutical research, oil refining and production, banking, and nuclear energy. In each case, he found the relatively simple structures hidden in formidably complex situations. Mr. Hay has published several books and numerous articles. He is a frequent speaker at professional Society Conferences. He is Founder and CEO of Essential Strategies International.
