The Future of Voting: Accessible, Reliable, Verifiable Technology
Statement of Task
An ad hoc committee under the auspices of the Committee on Science, Technology and Law and the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board will conduct a study that will: (1) document the current state of play in terms of technology, standards, and resources for voting technologies; (2) examine challenges arising out of the 2016 federal election; (3) evaluate advances in technology currently (and soon to be) available that may improve voting; and (4) offer recommendations that provide a vision of voting that is easier, accessible, reliable, and verifiable. The committee will issue a report at the conclusion of the study.
This study is sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
