Abstract/Artist Statement

A comprehensive review of literature on reducing voter errors was conducted to assess the prior research conducted in areas of voter education, poll worker training, and quality of ballots cast on Election Day. This review found that academic literature on reducing voter errors is very limited. Based on the review of literature and personal observation and interviews, the study proposed seven recommendations for San Joaquin County Registrar's Office. It is expected an implementation of these recommendations will greatly reduce voter errors and raise the quality of voting. In addition, the study proposed an education module which calls on more involvement of college students during Election Day. A discussion of implication, limitation and suggestions for future research is also provided.
