The Help America Vote Act mandated that all polling places have an accessible method of voting that provides privacy and independence. Direct Recording Electronic voting machines (DREs) have been assumed to be the solution to providing accessible voting, but there is reason to believe extant systems do not adequately serve this goal (Runyan, 2007). This study is a first step in addressing the lack of existing data on the usability of nonelectronic accessible voting methods and examined the… Expand
The Experience of Accessible Voting
The Help America Vote Act (2002) mandated that all polling places have an accessible method of voting available for those wishing to vote in federal elections. Unfortunately, there is presentlyExpand
Accessible Polling Places for the Visually Impaired: A Compilation of Survey Results
TLDR
This survey builds upon previous work with the visually disabled population and provides the opinions and recommendations of 202 legally blind voters on obstacles at the polling place, multiple modality systems, voting confidence, and input devices. Expand
Voting on a Smartphone
TLDR
Results showed that the mobile voting system was not as efficient as the other voting methods in total interaction time, however, smartphone owners committed fewer errors on the mobile Voting System than on the traditional voting systems. Expand
Improving Voter Privacy for the Blind
Visually impaired voters in Denmark are unable to vote privately in state elections. Our study examined voting systems that could improve voter privacy for the visually impaired in Denmark. We alsoExpand

A Comparison of Usability Between Voting Methods
TLDR
The usability of three different voting methods was evaluated using the metrics recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology: efficiency, effectiveness, and satisfaction, and large differences in satisfaction ratings indicated that participants were most satisfied with the bubble ballot and least dissatisfied with the lever machine. Expand
Now Do Voters Notice Review Screen Anomalies? A Look at Voting System Usability
TLDR
Improved instructions and a re-designed review screen that makes certain conditions, particularly undervotes, more visually salient improve the detection rate and show that the relationship between true error rates and the oft-used residual vote rate is not straightforward. Expand
Usability of voting systems: baseline data for paper, punch cards, and lever machines
TLDR
Overall, paper ballots were found to be particularly usable, which raises important technological and policy issues, and there were substantial effects on error rate. Expand
Measuring the Usability of Paper Ballots: Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Satisfaction
TLDR
Three traditional paper ballots were empirically evaluated to collect baseline data that can later be compared to newer, electronic voting systems, and voters were clearly more satisfied with their experience with the bubble ballot. Expand
Electronic voting machines versus traditional methods: improved preference, similar performance
TLDR
The series of studies reported here compares usability data from a DRE with those from more traditional voting technologies (paper ballots, punch cards, and lever machines). Expand
Electronic voting system usability issues
TLDR
This paper surveys issues relating to usability of electronic voting systems and reports on a series of studies, including one with 415 voters using new systems that the State of Maryland purchased. Expand

Despite the fact that the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) was established in mid-December 2003, and therefore missed the October 2003 statutory deadline for this report, we were able toExpand
SUS: A 'Quick and Dirty' Usability Scale
Usability does not exist in any absolute sense; it can only be defined with reference to particular contexts. This, in turn, means that there are no absolute measures of usability, since, if theExpand
