Currently, there is distrust of election technology and security in the United States. Why? The purpose of this session is to explore the whys and how to resolve the issues. One issue is the different thinking styles, emotional vs rational. Emotional thinking is susceptible to ignorance and propaganda. It goes with what sounds good and feels good. Facts and evidence are ignored. Rational thinking deals with facts, data, and evidence. A proposed solution is education. Research is needed to determine if election technology and security education will increase trust. As Socrates (470 – 399 BC), an ancient Greek philosopher from Athens, said “Democracy requires Education” (Acerbi, 2019). Education may cause a shift from emotional thinking to rational thinking. Below is an agenda for the curriculum. It will be briefly presented. Part A: Detecting voter fraud 1. Voter_data_file (permissions, share, attributes, honey pot, layers of defense) 2. Rigged software (hash values and digital signatures, separation of duties) 3. Dead voters (database integrity, mismatches & input errors) Part B: Misleading numbers 1. Statistical manipulations (criterion sampling vs random sampling) 2. Benford’s Law (digit frequencies) The goal is to provide information so people can talk from a position of knowledge if they find themself in a discussion on voter fraud.
