  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...
  • Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-04-01)
    Waiting in line to vote is one of the clichés of Election Day, whether the venue is Kenya or the United States. The length of time waiting to vote has regularly been an issue in the voting wars of the past decade. Long ...
  • Stewart III, Charles H. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2011-04-07)
    The Help America Vote Act (HAVA)1 is the most important direct federal response to the 2000 electoral fiasco in Florida. HAVA had many provisions, some directly inspired by the controversy, others that came along for the ...
  • Boehmke, Frederick J.; Alvarez, R. Michael (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2004-01-23)
    One of the biggest hurdles to qualifying an initiative for the ballot is gathering the required number of signatures. Yet little is known about these signatures' representativeness or demographic origin. Using data from ...
  • Selker, Ted; Goler, Jonathan A.; Wilde, Lorin F. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-02)
    This study shows how ballot interfaces variably affect the voting performance of people with different abilities. An interface with all information viewable simultaneously might either help orient or overwhelm a voter, ...
  • Sinclair, D. E. "Betsy"; Alvarez, R. Michael (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2003-09-09)
    In this study we examine over- and undervotes from the November 2000 General Election in Los Angeles County. Los Angeles County is the nation's largest election jurisdiction and it used a punchcard voting system in that ...
  • Alvarez, R. Michael; Hall, Thad E.; Sinclair, Betsy (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2005-02-01)
    Absentee voting is becoming more prevalent throughout the United States. While there has been some research focused on who votes by absentee ballot, little research has considered another important question about absentee ...
