Steve Kelley and Larry Jacobs weigh in on the possible future of casting ballots online.
"There's still a need for some mechanism that enables an effective audit or verification of the results," said Steve Kelley, director of Center for Science, Technology, and Public Policy at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs. However, Kelley said Internet voting will become prevalent in society in time. "The idea of casting ballots online is probably going to have its day, but there are hurdles to doing that," said Larry Jacobs, a political science professor at the Humphrey School.
