AdobeXD Podcast: Why Are Elections So Hard to Design Well?

Voting should be easy – and I helped LA County redesign the voter UX for their new ballot machines.

The fundamental design feature of a democratic society is a citizen’s right to vote. But ensuring that every person is able to vote is not as easy as it seems. Everything from how you design a paper ballot, build an electronic terminal, process a mail-in ballot, to how you engineer a public space for private voting and so on brings hundreds of complicated design decisions.

Hear me talk about the challenges and the rewards of designing the voter UX for the new VSAP ballot machines in LA County on Adobe’s Wireframe podcast hosted by Adobe Senior Director of Design Khoi Vinh.
