Recent elections have highlighted a resilience gap in many jurisdictions’ election processes and the technical capacity to adapt to changing circumstances. Additionally, there are ongoing concerns about voter accessibility and the need for protections against voter intimidation. In light of these challenges, it is critical to advance the exploration of alternative voting methods that can strengthen the resilience of elections.

Mobile voting (aka electronic ballot return) is one method that requires more study to understand its impact on the resiliency of the overall election system. However, key security concerns remain a barrier to the widespread adoption of mobile voting as a viable method. As highlighted in the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine, “We do not, at present, have the technology to offer a secure method to support internet [mobile] voting. It is certainly possible that individuals will be able to vote via the Internet in the future, but technical concerns preclude the possibility of doing so securely at present.”

Key concerns exist around the following areas: integrity of the ballot, voter privacy, and ballot secrecy & accuracy:

The goal of the grant program introduced by the National Cybersecurity Center this year is to identify and incorporate technologies that might both close the gap on the concerns outlined above and improve the resiliency of the election system.
