RPEAVT Archive

The Research Papers on Election Administration and Voting Technology (RPEAVT) archive is intended to help disseminate original research on election administration and voting technology. Research papers in this archive represent the research of their authors, and not the Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project (VTP) nor the individual research members of the VTP. Papers posted to the RPEAVT are not reviewed for accuracy, methodology, nor potential research impact; thus RPEAVT papers are not peer-reviewed. Papers that critique or are based on earlier papers in the RPEAVT are welcome. To have a paper included in the RPEAVT, please email a pdf copy to Gloria Bain, and after review to insure that the paper's content is appropriate for RPEAVT it will be placed into the archive. The VTP reserves the right to refuse posting of any paper, and to remove any paper from the RPEAVT archive at any time, and authors have the right to withdraw their papers from RPEAVT at any time as well.

The RPEAVT Series is made possible, in part, by the program grant to the VTP by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The content of the papers is the sole responsibility of the authors.
