Voters across the country expect uniformity in their electoral experience. Factors that directly impact the voter range from privacy for the voter and ballot secrecy to presentation and interaction modes such as enhanced visual and tactile controls.


The 2020 election will tap the significant technological change that is occurring to enhance the voter election process and ensure that the voter confidentiality is protected. Technology security requirements call for two-factor authentication for critical voting operations, and cryptographic protection.


Join us to explore the national response to digital threats to America’s election process.


Learning Objectives:    

  • Explore methods to build technology infrastructure that is secure yet addresses and promotes a uniform election experience for voters and election works alike.
  • Discuss the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) requirements for error correction in voting, accessibility for those with disabilities, and alternative language accessibility.
  • Detail best practices for ballot secrecy that prevent voter information from being carried through to the voting system.
  • Discuss a voter experience that uses best practices in usability, user-centric design and accessibility.
