These behavioral science tweaks could boost voter turnout during a pandemic election (even if it’s voting by mail)

{ object.primary_image.title }}

This organization found little ways to help increase midterm voter turnout in 2018. Next up: a 2020 election in a pandemic. Fears of voter suppression are firmly in the minds of many Americans in the lead-up to 2020, especially following the April primary election in Wisconsin when the Supreme Court refused to allow the state to make changes to its voting process, forcing 450,000 people to turn out in person during the height of a global pandemic and preventing an untold number of people from voting at all because they decided to stay home.

Your smart home device could be a threat to our elections

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Data from IoT devices—someone entering a building, driving, using a sink or coffee machine—could make all of us more susceptible to highly targeted spear-phishing attacks. The app failure that led to a chaotic 2020 Iowa caucus was a reminder of how vulnerable the democratic process is to technological problems—even without any malicious outside intervention. Far more sophisticated foreign hacking continues to try to disrupt democracy, as a rare joint federal agency warning advised prior to Super Tuesday.
