Elections: Looking Ahead
During the 2006 elections, more than 50,000 voters called national election hotlines with troubles, while the press reported hundreds of additional voting problems, ranging from 18,000 missing votes in a Florida congressional race still being litigated, to long lines and voter intimidation tactics. Following on the heels of similar crisis-ridden elections of 2000 and 2004, voting problems in 2006 have created a public outcry for reform.
Election reform advocates will talk about the problems and release an agenda of solutions endorsed by numerous national organizations representing millions of voters.
