Electronic voting poses unique challenges in computer science and public policy involving a complex mix of interest groups, technical requirements and policy constraints. Many of the issues we see today in electronic voting are issues of the future in other areas where privacy and transparency are directly conflict. The Clinic is engaged in a number of research-focused projects involving the law and policy of voting technology. A founding member of the NSF ACCURATE center, the Clinic enjoys close connections with voting technology experts and officials at all levels of government. Projects range from policy research on the theory and methods of auditing voting systems, to white papers on issues of concern to election officials to regulatory comment and testimony meant to thread the complex public policy needle of voting technology.
