history of voting in 3 reviews

The course is both a voyage in the history of voting, and a precise dissection of all methods that can be used (and generally was used) to trick voters.

Excellent history of voting that puts everything in context.

voting systems in 3 reviews

The level of the course was basic and did not really go into the technical details of the voting systems and subsequent attempts at breaking them.

If you are worried about electronic and on-online voting systems in your country, you MUST take this course.

Not technically challenging but the course was not designed to stretch the skills of computer scientists but to inform as many as possible of the importance of voting systems to democracy and what is at stake if corruption or incompetence takes hold.
