About This ReportFrom the introduction:
This paper is organized as follows. First, we discuss the goal of e-voting systems to derive requirements. We focus specifically on those requirements relevant to e-voting machines used in the context of current elections, and not on the use of e-voting machines to provide support for all of the voting process. The third section discusses how those suggest properties of e-voting systems. The fourth uses available public materials to examine current voting machines in the light of the questions developed in section 3. The last section summarizes the qualities that e-voting systems must preserve to maintain both the integrity of elections and the appearance of integrity of elections.
