Abstract

Several of the world’s largest democracies make use of on-site electronic voting, including India, Brazil, and the U.S. In recent years, there has also been increased interest in remote voting over the Internet, including in Estonia, Canada, and Switzerland. Electronic and Internet voting promise significant benefits, including increased accessibility for the disabled and elderly, the pre-emption of voter errors that lead to the invalidation of ballots, reductions in the cost of electoral administration, increased accuracy and speed in the tallying of results, and (especially in the case of Internet voting) increased electoral turnout. However, electronic and Internet voting also come with unique challenges in terms of regulation and the guarantee of electoral integrity. This panel collects papers on the implications of electronic and Internet voting for electoral behavior, including turnout, voter errors, and other electoral outcomes.
