Voting Technology

CPSR has been studying voting machines and the human-machine interface of voting since the 1980s. We have researched election systems, observed elections, commented on voting systems standards, and participated in the administration of elections. In 1994, CPSR sent a team to the Republic of South Africa to assist that nation in their historic elections. We have written numerous papers and reports on elections systems and spoken at elections administration conferences. Our work has been reported in newspapers, magazines such as Wired magazine, and broadcast media.

Why did you join CPSR?

I care about the issues that CPSR concerns itself, and I don't have the resources or time to address them personally.
