A new opportunity to fix our election systems has arrived, and momentum is building in Congress to ensure that all eligible Americans have a fair and equal opportunity to vote and to have their votes counted. As promised last week, the Brennan Center is launching a new website, http://www.federalelectionreform.com, to serve as a resource for election reform efforts at the federal level. The site is centered on a comprehensive agenda for election reform that has been endorsed by 25 organizations. The Brennan Center has also co-authored a policy paper detailing and expanding on this agenda, which we think Congress should use to guide its policy-making decisions.
Keep checking it out, as information, news and analyses of pending legislation, federal hearings and election reform issues will be updated regularly.
