The Committee on Governance tasked the team with examining options for moving the election process for faculty committees to a web-based, electronic system to simplify the counting process. We identified issues important to voting in small community elections, paying special attention to WPI’s specific requirements. Using that knowledge, we created a set of criteria for evaluating a proposed system's suitability for WPI faculty elections. Using the results of these evaluations we provide concrete steps to improve faculty elections.
