Abstract:
This project will identify social and technical areas (and questions) where the state of today.s technical knowledge is inadequate to provide reasonable answers. A better understanding of these areas will be useful both to policy makers, including elections officials, whose decision making should take note of the limits of today.s technical understanding and where further research could improve the voting process, and to researchers who would seek to remove those limits in the future. The results will be useful in their own right, but this project is conceptually the first phase of a more comprehensive project on electronic voting that would assess evidence about a broader set of issues in the use of information technology in the electoral process. That is, that larger project.should support be obtained. would use the results of this project as a point of departure for an effort that would enable a much deeper and more thorough exploration of the issues raised in the report from this project.
