Professor Juan Gilbert’s Prime III voting system (www.PrimeVotingSystem.com) will be used as a pilot on Sept. 9 in Nashua, N.H. After a recent meeting with New Hampshire’s Secretary of State, Dr. Gilbert’s technology will be implemented statewide in November.
Dr. Gilbert and his research team were awarded a $4.5 million grant from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to conduct research on accessible voting technologies. Dr. Gilbert’s research team also conducted studies on the time it takes to vote in an effort to reduce voting lines on Election Day.
The CISE Department welcomes Dr. Gilbert from Clemson University as the new Andrew Banks Family Preeminence Endowed Chair and Associate Chair of Research. Three faculty members also from Clemson will join him in the area of human-centered computing at the CISE Department.
