Report studies progress in election reform since 2004

A report released by the Leadership Council on Civil Rights, Common Cause, and The Century Foundation, examines progress on election reform since 2004, across a variety of areas: voter registration, voter identification, provisional ballots, voter suppression and intimidation, poll workers and polling places, and voting machines. This report also provides a detailed analysis of election reforms in ten key states, in a series of detailed appendices. There are three areas that the report identifies as potential problems in 2006: that some states have made the voter registration process more difficult, that long lines in polling places are likely to be a continued problem in 2006 and beyond, and that voter identification laws are likely to cause problems this fall.
