Twice in the past twenty years, the winner of the popular vote has lost the U.S. presidency. Is that the reason why voter turnout has significantly declined since the 1960’s? What can be done, short of a constitutional amendment abolishing the electoral college, to increase the number of Americans who vote? Would online voting, which is currently being piloted in a number of countries, increase voter turnout in the United States? If so, what are the technology challenges that need to be addressed in order to securely deploy an Internet voting system?
