Last August, I wrote about the exciting work of usability expert Dana Chisnell and several colleagues on a series of Field Guides for Ensuring Voter Intent, which Humphrey’s Election Academy is helping to promote with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
In less than a year, the Field Guides have been nothing less than a smashing success, gaining rave reviews for both their content and their ease of use for busy election professionals.
And now, the emphasis on better design in elections can continue with the release of four NEW Guides focused on the improving voter experience:
- + Choosing how to communicate with voters
- + Designing voter education booklets and flyers
- + Designing election department websites
- + Guiding voters through the polling place
Right now, the guides are available for free download, but you can pre-order printed copies through CivicDesigning here. Either way, you’ll be glad you did.
Congratulations to Dana and the entire Field Guides team for their continued commitment and passion for this project!
