  • Sances, Michael W.; Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2014-06-01)
    To what degree is voter confidence in election procedures driven by satisfaction with the outcome of an election, as opposed to trust in government or objective features of the polling place, such as voting technology? ...
  • Shen, Emily (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-02)
    We present new results in the areas of cryptography and voting systems. 1. Pattern matching encryption: We present new, general definitions for queryable encryption schemes – encryption schemes that allow evaluation of ...
  • Katz, Gabriel (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2009-03)
    This paper implements a unified model of individual abstention and vote choice to analyze policy-based alienation and indifference in Brazil’s 2002 presidential election. The results indicate that both alienation and ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-10-06)
    The Help America Vote Act (HAVA), passed in 2002, requires that states implement "...a single, uniform, official, centralized, interactive computerized statewide voter registration list defined, maintained, and administered ...
  • Rivest, Ronald L.; Rabin, Michael O. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2014-04-03)
    We describe how to use Rabin's "split-value" representations, originally developed for use in secure auctions, to efficiently implement end-to-end verifiable voting. We propose a simple and very elegant combination of ...
  • Rivest, Ronald L.; Rabin, Michael O. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2014-05-12)
    Continuing the work of Rabin and Rivest we present another simple and fast method for conducting end to end voting and allowing public verification of correctness of the announced vote tallying results. This method was ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-10-05)
    This is a type of threat that has a long history in electoral politics, and can take many forms. The basic approach is that a perpetrator attacks precinct voting, regardless of voting system, on election day in an effort ...
  • Rivest, Ronald L. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-08-06)
    We introduce the notion of preliminary voting, or pre-voting, wherein a voter deposits—perhaps over the Internet—a preliminary vote or prevote with election authorities at some time before the close of elections. Prevotes ...
  • Selker, Ted (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2004-09-07)
    Across the United States, I have personally watched hundreds of precincts vote since 2001. Most recently, I traveled to Reno/Sparks, Nevada to observe the rollout of the Sequoia Direct record electronic voting systems with ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-11-22)
    The Buenos Aires “VotoElectronico” pilot project took place on October 23, 2005, in the City of Buenos Aires. It involved a pilot test of four different electronic voting systems, in at least 43 voting stations located ...
  • Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2009-07-25)
  • Alvarez, R. Michael; Hall, Thad E. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-07)
    The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) has created a new dynamic for the oversight and implementation of federal elections, requiring states to assume greater control of election processes vis-a-vis their local governments than ...
