As computers become a more embedded aspect of daily life, the importance of communicating ideas in computing and technology to the general public has become increasingly apparent. One such growing technology is electronic voting. The feasibility of explaining electronic voting protocols was directly investigated through the generation of a presentation based on journal articles and papers identified by the investigator. Extensive use of analogy and visual aids were used to explain various cryptographic concepts. The presentation was then given to a classroom of ASU freshmen, followed by a feedback survey. A self-evaluation on the presentation methods is conducted, and a procedure for explaining subjects in computer science is proposed based on the researcher's personal process.
