  • Selker, Ted; Goler, Jonathan (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2004-01-04)
    Existing technology is capable of yielding secure, reliable, and auditable voting systems. This system outlines an architecture based on redundancy at each stage of the ballot submission process that is resistant to external ...
  • Carback, Richard; Chaum, David; Clark, Jeremy; Conway, John; Essex, Aleksander; Herrnson, Paul S.; Mayberry, Travis; Popoveniuc, Stefan; Rivest, Ronald L.; Shen, Emily; Sherman, Alan T.; Vora, Poorvi L. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2010-02-01)
    On November 3, 2009, voters in Takoma Park, Maryland, cast ballots for mayor and city council members using the ScantegrityII voting system—the first time any end-to-end (e2e) voting system with ballot privacy has been ...
  • McBurnett, Neal; Carback, Richard T.; Chaum, David; Clark, Jeremy; Conway, John; Essex, Aleksander; Herrnson, Paul S.; Mayberry, Travis; Popoveniuc, Stefan; Rivest, Ronald L.; Shen, Emily; Sherman, Alan T.; Vora, Poorvi L. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2014-12-28)
    This note is a response to, and critique of, recent work by Acemyan, Kortum, Bryne, and Wallach regarding the usability of end-to-end verifiable voting systems, and in particular, to their analysis of the usability of the ...
  • Selker, Ted; Goler, Jon (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2004-04)
    A proposed Voter Verifiable Paper Trail (VVPT) includes a printed ballot as a receipt that a voter can view to verify their vote before leaving an electronic voting machine. This method is also supposed to insure the ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael; Ansolabehere, Stephen; Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2004-11)
    Professor Geralyn Miller reminds us of the range of voting administration practices across the United States. We use this variability to study the average performance of various types of voting equipment throughout the ...
  • Selker, Ted (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2008-02-06)
    Election results showed extremely inconsistent voting rates for two high profile races in the Florida counties of Sarasota, Charlotte, and Sumter on November 7, 2006. The expected missing selections for these races were ...
  • Selker, Ted (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-06-21)
    In the past five years, following the 2000 Florida election fiasco, the voting technologies used in the United States have undergone a significant change. The use of direct recording electronic (DRE) voting machines has ...
  • Rivest, Ronald L. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2006-10-01)
    We present a new paper-based voting method with interesting security properties. The attempt here is to see if one can achieve the same security properties of recently proposed cryptographic voting protocols, but without ...
  • Ordeshook, Peter; Myagkov, Mikhail (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2008-03)
    Ukraine’s 2007 parliamentary elections, like its 2006 vote, passed with few of the allegations of fraud and electoral malfeasance that characterized the second round of its 2004 presidential balloting. There was, though, ...
  • Ansolabehere, Stephen; Reeves, Andrew (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2004-01)
    The 2000 presidential election exposed a surprisingly high level of inaccuracy in the tabulation of ballots. Differences between total vallots cast and votes counted were as high as 19 percent in some counties in Florida, ...
  • Sled, Sarah M. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2003-10-27)
    The 2003 California recall election provides a unique opportunity to assess the impact of variations in ballot design and voting methods on the voting accuracy of citizens. Analysis of the results of the California Recall ...
  • Llewellyn, Morgan H.; Hall, Thad E.; Alvarez, R. Michael (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2008-08)
    A number of recent studies examine how confident voters are that their ballots are counted as intended in U.S. federal elections from 2000 to 2004. One consistent finding of these studies is that, relative to Democrats, ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael; Hall, Thad E.; Levin, Ines; Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2010-07-14)
    We study public opinions about convenience voting reforms, using a unique state-by-state survey conducted in the 2008 presidential election. Our analysis of the American voting public’s support for potential convenience ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-06-17)
    The Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project identified problems with voter registration as a pressing problem in the 2000 presidential election; between 1.5 and 3 million votes were lost due to voter registration problems ...
  • Selker, Ted (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2004-09-29)
    The debate about verifiable voter audit trails has prematurely narrowed into two camps: those who categorically deny the need for any back-up records and those who advocate the Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT). ...
  • Stewart, Charles (Massachussets Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Stewart III, Charles H.; Alvarez, R. Michael; Hall, Thad E. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2010-07-14)
    In this paper, we examine the attitudes of voters regarding the voting experience in the 2009 gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia. We focus especially on the way in which voting technology experiences that ...
