We’re excited to announce the release of our latest publication, Casting Votes Safely: Examining Internet Voting’s Dangers and Highlighting Safer Alternatives. Our paper outlines studies that expose the dangers of internet voting—which is currently being considered in states across the country—and highlights alternatives that promote voter enfranchisement while safeguarding our elections.

Highlights include: 

  • Democracy depends on citizens’ trust in our elections, the ability to cast a ballot without obstacles, and having solid evidence that the winner won and the loser lost.
  • Notable consensus studies on internet voting all show that its adoption threatens the validity of our elections, and widespread usage could compromise our elections at scale.
  • There are better options for voters that prioritize voter enfranchisement and preserve a voter’s right to a secret ballot. 
  • Safeguarding the democratic process and public confidence is paramount.
