American Attitudes about Electronic Voting, Results of a National Survey

R. Michael Alvarez
Thad E. Hall

This study examines current attitudes of the American electorate toward electronic voting. This issue is critical to understand, given the highly argumentative debate going on among media and political elites on this topic, as well as the movement in many states and localities toward electronic voting systems. If American voters lack confidence in electronic voting systems--or for that matter all the various voting systems they may use in this fall's presidential election--the basic integrity of our democratic system could be in jeopardy.
