Imagine my surprise this morning when I opened my email and found the following media update: “University of Utah Researcher on Election Reform: Political Science Professor Studies Election Law.” I was shocked … but then found out it was only Thad! Here’s the blurb:
Election 2006 will mark the first under the “Help America Vote Act” or HAVA – created in the aftermath of the 2000 election debacle in Florida.
University of Utah researcher Thad Hall is part of a group researching the best practices around the country regarding vote counting and recount rules. He recently presented his preliminary findings to the United States Election Assistance Commission. He tells KCPW’s Bryan Schott many states need an overhaul of their election laws.
