Government Reports on Elections

The following government reports were selected by GovSpot.com editors as meaningful or noteworthy:



Election Reform
In April of 2007, the National Commission on Election Reform released this study, which looks at the effects of moving presidential preference primaries earlier in the election cycle. Twenty-seven states will hold their primary/caucus on February 5, 2008, so that the traditional "Super Tuesday" of March will be moved to February.



Florida Disenfranchisement
The United States Commission on Civil Rights studied the 2000 election in Florida and found that the proceedings were "marred by voter disenfranchisement." The report, Voting Irregularities in Florida During the 2000 Presidential Election (June 2001), cited multiple problems that led to many citizens not being able to vote. The USCCR is an independent, bipartisan, fact-finding agency of the Executive Branch.



Election 2000 Report
The National Commission on Federal Election Reform issued their Final Report (July 2001) on the November 2000 elections. The report discusses the types of voting machines and ballots used and the problems they caused. The report also suggests changes that can be made to improve the voting process.






Wasted Votes
Between 4 million and 6 million votes in the 2000 election were lost due to problems with ballots, voting machines and registration, according to a new study by the CalTech-MIT Voting Technology Project. Voting - What Is, What Could Be (July 2001) suggests solutions for voting problems, including same-day registration and optical scanners, the most reliable voting method.



Election Aftermath
Relive one of the closest elections in American history with this collection of Election 2000 Materials from the Stanford University Law School. This site gathers all the legal documents and court opinions for the court cases brought after the election. The site also provides links to other relevant Web sites.



Internet Voting
A National Science Foundation report recommends Internet voting at polling places over "remote Internet voting systems." The report was commissioned by the White House in 1999. Learn more about the results in Wired (3/6/01).
