Engineering Elections: The Science Behind the Voting Process

Zoom
United States

How many voting machines should each polling place have? Does the line to vote really need to be that long? How safe and costly are vote-by-mail options likely to be? And could any of these things impact the outcome of an election? Join Theodore T. Allen, associate professor of integrated systems engineering at Ohio State and a member of the MIT Election Lab, to learn how engineers can solve voting process challenges.
