"In Election Attitude, How Internet Voting Leads to a Stronger Democracy," Dr. John R. Patrick explores how we register and vote in America. Voting is done with antiquated machines running out-of-date software. Millions of votes go uncounted. Ballots get lost. Patrick discusses how Internet voting with mobile devices can solve these and many other problems.

"Election Attitude" discusses Internet security, privacy, authentification, verifiability, and other challenges to online voting and then paints a positive vision of how solutions can be developed to bring voting into the modern era.
