A Framework for Understanding Electronic Voting:
Letter Report

Some U.S. jurisdictions will use electronic voting in the November 2006 congressional elections. This letter report from the National Academies’ National Research Council, based on a workshop held on May 12 in Washington, D.C., describes the status of equipment deployment and gauges the jurisdictions' readiness in light of the findings of the 2005 Research Council report Asking the Right Questions About Electronic Voting.

This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on July 25, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
