Moynihan and Silva believe that more research is required that gives public officials advice on which approach is better under different criteria and institutional arrangements, and that given the increased adoption of DRE technologies, a most pertinent research question is to understand how election officials actually make choices between competing technologies. They concede that the concept of the residual vote may have some limited benefits for assessing the overall efficacy of DRE technology. However, given the nature of the risks associated with this technology, they argue that those more substantial risks demand new approaches for examining research technology.
