    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Burden, Barry C.; Milyo, Jeffrey (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-09-06)
    In every election an army of temporary poll workers must be recruited and trained to both assist the public in exercising the right to vote and to enforce the rules governing the voting process. These poll workers are ...
  • Stein, Robert M. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-09-04)
    The conduct of elections is constrained by a myriad of factors that vary greatly across the 3,000+ jurisdictions authorized to administered elections in the United States. Among these factors are anticipated and unanticipated ...
  • 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. ...
  • Burden, Barry C. (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-07-15)
    1. Americans cast their ballots in three main ways: at a traditional neighborhood polling place on election day; early, in person at a government office or voting center; and absentee, which is usually submitted early 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 ...

    The Presidential Commission on Election Administration’s mission includes identifying best practices and making recommendations to promote voting accessibility and improve the experiences of voters with disabilities. This ...
  • Shaw, Daron; Hutchings, Vincent (Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2013-06-21)
    Both empirical and anecdotal data indicate that the use of provisional ballots in U.S. elections is a mixed bag. On the one hand, providing voters whose eligibility is unclear with an opportunity to cast a provisional ...
  • 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 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 ...
