Are America's Elections Fair and Competent?

June 13, 2007
A Conference at the National Press Club

Are America's elections as fair and professionally-conducted as Mexico's? Such a question would have been laughable fifteen years ago. Today, the question is not a joke, and the answer also isn't funny: "no." American University's Center for Democracy and Election Management (CDEM) hosted "Change the Way America Runs Its Elections," a conference which examined our current problems and offered new proposals.
