A Roundtable Discussion on The Business of Voting: Market Structure and Innovation in the Election Technology Industry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Wharton School and OSET Institute collaborated on research and development of a first-ever industry study for voting equipment; that is, the “Business of Voting.” The first objective of the Report was to compile a set of facts about the industry, including market players, revenue, profitability, and competitive dynamics. The second objective was to provide an original analysis of industry dynamics that can shed light on what has prevented this sector of government I.T. from enjoying the level of innovation seen in other technology sectors. This session will consider a key observation: that a long-term solution to the voting machine crisis is unlikely until policymakers and market actors address underlying business issues and take steps to catalyze changes in the election technology industry to bring about innovation.
