The ThreeBallot Voting System
(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 ...
Scantegrity Responds to Rice Study on Usability of the Scantegrity II Voting System
(Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2014-12-28)
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 ...
Scantegrity II Municipal Election at Takoma Park: The First E2E Binding Governmental Election with Ballot Privacy
(Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2010-02-01)
On November 3, 2009, voters in Takoma Park, Maryland, cast ballots for mayor and city council members using the ScantegrityII voting system—the first time any end-to-end (e2e) voting system with ballot privacy has been ...
On Auditing Elections When Precincts Have Different Sizes
(Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2007-04-29)
We address the problem of auditing an election when precincts may have different sizes, and suggest methods for picking a sample of precincts to audit that takes precinct size into account. one method yields optimal auditing ...
Practical Provably Correct Voter Privacy Protecting End-to-End Voting Employing Multiparty Computations and Split Value Representations of Votes
(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 ...
Residual Votes Attributable to Technology: An Assessment of the Reliability of Existing Voting Equipment
(Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2001-03-30)
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 ...
A Modular Voting Architecture ("Frogs")
(Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2001-08-18)
We present a “modular voting architecture” in which “vote generation” is performed separately from “vote casting.”
Reflections on the VTP's contributions to science, policymaking and education
(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 ...
Practical End-to-End Verifiable Voting via Split-Value Representations and Randomized Partial Checking
(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 ...
On Estimating the Size and Confidence of a Statistical Audit
(Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, 2007-04-22)
We consider the problem of statistical sampling for auditing elections, and we develop a remarkably simple and easily-calculated upper bound for the sample size necessary for determining with probability at least c whether ...
