The Pew Charitable Trust’s State and Consumer Initiatives Program published a report on Tuesday which revealed a significant increase in “the number of states that offered online registration, the number of states conducting post-election audits, and the number of states that offer a transparent look at the data they collect,” according to The Washington Post.
For South Carolina, the data shows improvements in S.C. elections from 2008 to 2012.
The states with the most improvement year after year, were adamant about the use of technology during the election process so that it may run more efficiently. From evaluating absentee and provisional ballots to hurrying people through lines, the improved states can more often monitor their efficiency and better improve areas that are less efficient.
