Research Database on the US Voting System

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is an international non-profit organization with a special focus on “science, engineering and innovation.”  It also publishes the journal Science.  AAAS has just launched a new database which has the lofty goal of providing fundamental information about “the accuracy, reliability and security of voting technologies, election administration” and more.

The database, formally known as the Research Database on the US Voting System and Voting Technology, “provides access to empirical and analytical research about voting and elections to inform evidence-based reforms.  The database includes bibliographic information, abstracts and links to research covering a broad set of issues such as accessibility, ballot design, public confidence, voter demographics, voting technology, and voter registration.”

At present the database has approximately 500 entries – mostly published after 2000 –  but is anticipated to swell greatly over time.
