  • 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 ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael; Stewart III, Charles H.; Rivest, Ronald L. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2010-09)
    In the immediate wake of the 2000 presidential election, the Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project was initiated. The initial and primary concern of the VTP at that moment was to understand the problems that arose in the ...
  • Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2004-10-08)
    Following the 2000 presidential election, the state of Georgia instituted the most comprehensive overhaul of voting technology in the country. Georgia’s actions, led by Secretary of State Cathy Cox, were precipitated by ...
  • Ansolabehere, Stephen; Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-06-26)
    Voter registration systems are the backbone of election administration in the United States today. These lists facilitate the operation of elections at the precinct level, communications by election officials and candidates ...
  • Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2011-02-03)
    The decision issued by the three-judge panel of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in the matter of Hunter v. Hamilton County Board of Elections contains a very interesting analysis of problems with Ohio’s law about counting ...
  • Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-02-07)
    In 2000 Americans learned that their elections are not always run according to the highest standards. This revelation led to two major developments. The first was a flurry of election reform activity at the state and ...

    American elections are conducted using a hodge-podge of different voting technologies: paper ballots, lever machines, punch cards, optically scanned ballots, and electronic machines. And the technologies we use change ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael; Hall, Thad E. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2009-08)
    The practice of voter registration has a long history in the United States. In 1800, Massachusetts was the first state to impose a voter registration requirement. By Reconstruction, voter registration was used in a handful ...
  • Sinclair, J. Andrew (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2012-11-02)
    This report summarizes some basic results of California’s June 2012 “Top-Two” primary. It focuses on legislative offices with multiple districts within the state: California State Assembly, California State Senate, and ...
  • Ordeshook, Peter; Myagkov, Misha (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2008-03)
    Considerable controversy swirls around the extent to which Russia’s elections have been falsified. We argue here on the basis of an assessment of aberrant distributions of turnout in official election returns for each or ...
  • 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 ...

    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)
