President of the Board of Directors

Aileen Nakamura

Vice President and Secretary of the Board of Directors

Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, Aileen is an election security advocate with multicultural views. She doesn’t take the right to vote for granted, as her father’s family was wrongfully incarcerated in Japanese American ‘camps’ during WWII. Her father later volunteered from camp to fight for the freedom of all Americans. Aileen’s passions are: teaching students about this dark chapter in American history; and fighting for safe, secure, and transparent elections. 

Aileen received her degrees in Computer Science and Cognitive Science from Wellesley College. She has worked in development and marketing at both Japanese and American computer companies including Lotus Corporation and Compaq Computer Corporation.

In 2016, Aileen turned her focus to voting issues in Georgia, where she and her family have lived since 2007. She has testified at legislative hearings in Georgia, imploring lawmakers to listen to election integrity and cybersecurity experts.

Aileen currently serves as Assistant Secretary for the Coalition for Good Governance (CGG).  She has spent about 200 hours observing Georgia elections including Logic & Accuracy testing, poll watching, and tabulation monitoring. She has also testified as a fact witness in the 2024 Curling v Raffensperger trial for CGG. Aileen is thrilled to be working with Scrutineers, and dreams of a day when voters can have full confidence in the security and integrity of their vote.
