A smart-city presidency?

This year's race for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination has included, at various points, a half-dozen former mayors who touted themselves as savvy, data-driven technocrats who tried to turn their communities into "smart cities."

That's why protecting voter registration databases needs to be the top priority, says Samuel Visner of the MITRE Corporation. Read the commentary.
