  • 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 ...
  • Hall, Thad E. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2008-09-15)
    The problems faced by overseas civilians, military personnel, and their dependents—individuals covered by the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA)—have existed since the nation’s founding. From the ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hall, Thad E. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2009-04)
    At a conference on election reform held by the National Academies of Science in 2004, Indiana’s Secretary of State, Todd Rokita, referred to poll workers as “the street level lawyers” of elections. The reason for his ...
  • Atkeson, Lonna Rae (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2011-04-17)
    Over the last decade, scholars of American politics have invested research time and effort into the study of election administration and election performance. These include studies onresidual vote analysis (Wand et al 2001; ...
  • 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). ...
  • Inbody, Donald S. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-06)
    The principal problem in serving overseas citizens and military voters is how best to return a marked ballot to local election officials. Prior to 2009, insufficient time was provided for an overseas voter’s ballot to be ...
  • Stewart, Charles (Massachussets Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Hall, Thad E. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2009-04)
    The 2008 election was different from the last two presidential elections in that there was a clear winner on Election Day and the winner was a Democrat, Barack Obama. Controversies over voting technology that raged in 2000 ...
  • 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 ...

  • Alvarez, R. Michael; Stewart III, Charles H.; Beckett, Dustin (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2011-05-05)
    This paper examines how the growth in vote-by-mail and changes in voting technologies led to changes in the residual vote rate in California from 1990 to 2010. We find that in California’s presidential elections, counties ...
  • 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 ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael; Katz, Jonathan N.; Stewart III, Charles H.; Rivest, Ronald L.; Ansolabehere, Stephen; Hall, Thad E. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-01-08)
    Since the origins of the Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project in the fall of 2000, there has been an explosion of research and analysis on election administration and voting technology. As we worked throughout 2012 on ...
