Grants for Research & Development

Background

ITIF issued a call for proposals in the spring of 2012 for projects to further pursue election accessibility research and design.

We anticipate a call for proposals that will build on the needs identified in the early work of this project. Examples of potential projects include:

  • Develop prototypes of the concepts identified during our design workshops and open innovation challenge
  • Research  technology and security requirements needed to implement accessible design concepts
  • Continue research or development of other promising voting systems and prototypes

These grants will focus on projects that

  • Solve specific accessibility problems identified in our design phase;
  • Can be integrated into existing voting systems; and/or
  • Target disabilities which have received less focus in previous research, such as cognitive and age-related disabilities
