Publisher's Summary

The upcoming Presidential election will be pivotal in determining our country's future for years to come. The race is intensifying, but our antiquated voting system may not be able to accurately count all the votes. Millions of military and other overseas voters will be dependent on the postal system to vote. Millions of votes in past elections went uncounted. The United States ranks number 31 out of the leading 34 developed countries in voter participation. One of the reasons for the low turnout is our out-of-date system for registration and voting. Physically going to a polling place is an old fashioned idea to millennials. Election Attitude: How Internet Voting Leads to a Stronger Democracy, is an eye-opening and thought-provoking book which explores how we register and vote in America. Voting is mostly done with out-of-date machines running out-of-date software. After the voting debacle of 2000, thousands of voting jurisdictions across America replaced their voting machines with the latest technology available. Now that equipment is nearly 15 years old. Many Americans are asking why we cannot vote on the Internet. To his surprise, Dr. John R. Patrick discovered anti-Internet voting activists have convinced political leaders and election officials the Internet is not good enough for voting. Election Attitude debunks this concern with an in-depth discussion about Internet security, authentication, privacy, verifiability, and other challenges to online voting. Election Attitude paints a positive vision for how solutions can be developed to bring voting into the modern era.
