Lecture: "Electronic Voting: Danger and Opportunity"

Edward W. Felten, Princeton University
Friday, October 17, 2008
11 a. m., Lecture Center B1
Electronic voting machines have made our elections less reliable and  less secure, but recent developments offer hope of a better system in  the future. Current research offers the hope of a future voting  system that is more reliable and more secure than ever before, at  reasonable cost, by combining high-tech and low-tech methods so that  each can compensate for the weaknesses of the other. This talk will  sketch what this future might look like, and will highlight some of the research that may make it possible.
