Aperio: High Integrity Elections for Developing Countries

In IAVoSS Workshop on Trustworthy Elections (WOTE), 2008

Aleksander Essex, Jeremy Clark, and Carlisle Adams

Abstract. This article presents an end-to-end integrity verification mechanism for use in minimally equipped secret paper-ballot election environments. The scheme presented in this paper achieves high integrity properties without interfering with the traditional marking and tabulation procedures of paper ballot elections. Officials and auditors can respectively generate and independently verify end-to-end audit trails, with office stationery and entirely without cryptographic or mathematic computations.
