E-Voting in an Untrustworthy World
Dr. Rebecca Mercuri

The Providence Section is holding a PACE dinner meeting on Tuesday, September 28, 2004. The presentation topic will be "E-Voting in an Untrustworthy World" by Dr. Rebecca Mercuri. Dr. Mercuri's talk will explore the vulnerabilities of electronic voting systems to insider and outsider attacks, along with the possibilities and ramifications of large-scale vote fraud in the 2004 election and beyond. A few weeks before November 2000, Dr. Mercuri had successfully defended her Doctoral Dissertation "Electronic Vote Tabulation: Checks and Balances" at the University of Pennsylvania, and then found herself writing testimony in the now-legendary Bush v. Gore case that was working its way through the legal system.
