Elections: Looking Ahead

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST

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.
