Orienting Graphical User Interfaces Reduces Errors: The Low Error Voting Interface
Author(s)Selker, Ted; Hockenberry, Matt; Goler, John; Sullivan, Shawn
This paper demonstrates opportunities for reducing errors with orienting graphical interfaces for voting. We have built many interfaces to explore opportunities for keeping voters aware of selections they have made and are making. Tests of our best prototypes show that missed races and incorrect selection errors are greatly reduced with orienting graphics. The interface reduces errors significantly while extending the time required to vote.
