ACCURATE is a multi-institution voting research center funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under their CyberTrust program. The goals of the center are:

  • to research ways in which technology can be used to improve voting systems and the voting process;
  • to develop the science that will help inform the election community and the public about the tradeoffs among various voting technologies and procedures; and
  • to serve as a resource to the elections community, politicians, vendors, and the public about issues related to public policy, technology, and law with respect to voting.
  • to publish and disseminate our research so that future systems can benefit from the center's work.
