The Task-Technology-Individual Fit (TTIF) model is used to explain voter error, conceived as the fit among three sets of factors: aspects of the voting task, the technology used to support the voting process, and the individual voter attributes. The primary question of this study is: How does voter verification reduce voter error and improve voter confidence in democratic elections? Voters voting in either a polling place or by mail and using different verification methods were interviewed, and data were analyzed by both qualitative and quantitative methods. The results partially support relationships between each of the independent variables and verification, and correction/confirmation with voter confidence. The qualitative analysis indicates potential for deeper future study of voter verification using emergent themes.
