Interfaces for electronic voting: focus group evidence
This paper shows requirements for morally acceptable interfaces when used for electronic voting in public elections. It reports on evidence from professionally conducted focus groups studying what representative citizens thought before their views were distorted by experience of particular implementations of electronic voting, and uniquely during exposure to a mock-up implementation for the first time. It uses focus groups at the stage in usability design where such a technique is appropriate. The paper has led to regular media coverage, and was specifically referred to in the Evening Standard as recently as 5th March 2007.
