The College of Information Sciences and Technology's online voters survey to gauge reaction to factors including voting equipment, election staff and atmosphere at the polling places has concluded.
“This survey provides a timely online service to allow voters to share information regarding their voting experience, both positive and negative,” said John Yen, IST’s associate dean for research and graduate programs. “The data gathered can help voters to see whether their voting experience is similar to or different from others in the same city, county or state”
The project also will benefit the college’s Global Prescience research effort, which aims to detect and predict global trends by analyzing current events and the relationships among them. The data collected from the 2008 voter survey will provide a basis for comparing data from similar projects in the future.
