1 Prime III: One Machine, One Vote for Everyone


Has voting technology ever allowed all segments of the voting population to vote privately, securely and independently with equal access? In short the answer is no. In an effort to address this very issue a usable and secure (usable security), multimodal electronic voting system that allows voters to vote using voice, touch or both was developed, Prime III. Prime III is one machine that gives equal access to the electoral process for all citizens. Electronic Voting Issues Mark-sense ballots Mark-sense ballots also known as, optically scanned paper ballots, list the candidates ’ name or issue next to an oval, square, or circle. The voter marks his or her choice by filling in the oval, square or circle. Once done, they can take their ballot to a scanner which records their vote by using “dark mark logic” which recognizes the darkest mark for a given set (Optical Scan Voting Systems, 2007). This form of voting has a low learning curve and is easy to implement. However, issues do arise when the scanner can 2 not recognize the darkest mark so there is no way to guarantee that your vote will be recorded properly
