Internet Voting: Interview with William J. Kelleher, Ph.D.

William J. Kelleher has a Ph.D. in political science, from the University of California, Santa Barbara (1984).  He has written two books about the process of elections in the USA. The first, The New Election Game (1987), reviewed the history of campaign finance reform in US presidential elections, and discussed Buckminster Fuller’s idea of telephone voting as an election reform.  That book came out just before the “PC Revolution,” in the US.  So, the new technology soon made that book out of date.  His second book on election reform is Internet Voting Now! (2011).   As the title suggests, he advocates using Internet voting for all US elections.
