Hey, you UX nerds who are ready to do teardowns of elections in Florida, may I suggest a little homework, first.

I have some reading assignments.
Why U.S. elections are the way they are:…
Tech in elections administration:…
Making voting universal:…
The difference between the experience privileged voters have and burdened voters have:…
Showcases of EXCELLENT work BY election officials across the country:
Yes, there is a federal commission. They publish guidance and standards for voting systems and election administration. You might be interested in the voting system certification process.…
And, yes! Ballot design standards!…
Much data is collected about how elections get run.…
Maybe you’d like some popular press pieces to put in your Instapaper. @civicdesign’s @whitneyq is featured in the Sun Sentinel:…
@civicdesign @whitneyq The high stakes of ballot design, again featuring the brilliant @whitneyq, of @civicdesign…
Please sign up to be a poll worker in the next election.

It’ll be the best field research you’ve ever done.
And, for heavens sake, follow @civicdesign where we tweet every day about design in elections and work to support election officials everywhere who are making elections better.
@civicdesign If you made it this far in the thread, you deserve a treat. A fantastic talk by @whitneyq about ballots that fool voters:…
@civicdesign @whitneyq So! I tweeted all this from my personal account because, right now, I have more followers than my company account.

Please follow @civicdesign to stay current design in elections and government, generally.
@civicdesign @whitneyq People who did the work in the references I included:
+dozens of volunteers
+hundreds(?) of election officials
+thousands of voters and not-yet-voters
OH OH OH OH could not have done any of it without our excellent partners at @oxidedesign! They have made us look good for years and @drewoxide headed the first work on ballot design guidelines.
