1. US Ballot Design

    October 8, 2020 by Hanna W and Samy M.

    Driving Question: How might we collaboratively implement a design-thinking process to meet the needs of the community we serve?

    What were your goals for this module? How did you achieve them?

    Our main goal for this module was to take the US ballot design issues and come up with a new ballot that the people understand. We went through many interviews with users to meet this goal and detected the main problems with the existing ballots. We found that generally, they were very confusing and out of order. We took the information we learned and implemented it into our design. To make sure that our design hit our goals, we got many rounds of feedback. In the end, the above design proved to be the most self-explanatory and neutral.

    What did you learn about yourself, your creative process, or about your medium?

    We learned tons about the US voting process, as well as how to lead effective interviews.

    What did this project mean to you?

    This project was very relevant to Hanna and interesting to Samy because of the US election happening this year and the scandals with voting fraud.
