  • 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? ...
  • Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2014-05-14)
    THERE IS A NEED FOR A MORE DATA-CENTERED APPROACH TO ELECTION ADMINISTRATION. Election policymaking would greatly benefit from metrics-based policymaking, and the development of measures similar to those in policy areas ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Pellissier, Allyson (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2014-02-18)
    Online voter registration is one of the most recent efforts to stimulate turnout in American elections. Within the past decade, an increasing number of states have begun to allow their residents to register as voters ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael; Stewart III, Charles H.; Beckett, Dustin (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-09)
    To test the supposition that the lost votes recovered by California through the modernization of voting technologies may be being undone by the trend toward more voting by mail, Table A1 attempts to quantify changes in the ...
  • Stewart III, Charles H.; Shaw, Daron (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-08-03)
    Since our country’s inception, collecting appropriate data on elections and the administration of elections has been somewhat problematic, due to the fact that multiple levels of government are involved in running elections ...
  • Stewart III, Charles H.; Ansolabehere, Stephen (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-07-28)
    Waiting in line to vote is the most visible sign of the administrative friction of managing elections. The visibility of long lines makes them a convenient symbol for those who seek to improve election administration. ...
