Ballot Box, making voting accessible for all.
This project was started during the 2016 election season beginning in August. With the turmoil that had already been seen at that time, the question of 'how can we make voting easier, more accessible, and secure' was being set forth and warranting immediate attention. This project focuses on how down-ticket voting takes place in Marion county Indiana. Preliminary research consisted of meeting with the prior county clerk to find out more on how the running of voting in a county happens and the laws that dictate voting in Indiana. As a result the following is a recommendation of a possible solution to the current voting system, as well as a particular focus on accessing the voting location.
Michael is a 22 year old, full time college student and is voting for the second time. He is slightly dreading the whole experience due to how it was the first time: Long lines, intrusive atmosphere, general chaos, inexperience with the state ’s voting laws, and policies made a bad first impression. He hopes that the new system will function better for his purposes.
