3 Timeline 1700’s1800’s Raising of hands “Aye” or “Nay” Early Paper Ballots U.S. adopts Australian White Paper Ballots Punch Card Machines Optical Scan Machines Electronic Voting Machines Australia – White Paper Ballots Mechanical Lever Action Voting Machines Touch Screens (in some states) (Bellis, 2007; Saltman, 2006)

4 Current Failures 2000 – hanging chads and butterfly ballots (Mercuri, 2002) 2000 – hanging chads and butterfly ballots (Mercuri, 2002) 2002 – faulty memory card (Anderson, 2006) 2002 – faulty memory card (Anderson, 2006) 2003 – machines miscount ballots (Anderson, 2006) 2003 – machines miscount ballots (Anderson, 2006) 2004 – improperly calibrated scanner (Mercuri, 2002) 2004 – improperly calibrated scanner (Mercuri, 2002) 2006 – polls do not open on time (“E-voting”, 2006) 2006 – polls do not open on time (“E-voting”, 2006)

5 E-voting System Accuracy Accuracy Verifiability Verifiability Democracy Democracy Privacy Privacy Convenience Convenience Flexibility Flexibility Mobility Mobility (Cranor & Cytron, 1996) (eWeek, 2005)

6 Proposed Characteristics Reliability Reliability Consistency Consistency Social Acceptance Social Acceptance (Hines & Rash, 2006)(Matson, 2004)
