Close Elections and Election Administration

The story all election officials like to tell is that they always want the election to be a blowout so that any problems will not affect the outcome. If you listen to On Point today, a radio show out of WBUR in Boston on NPR, they have a nice story about all of the House and Senate races that are expected to be highly competitive. These races will put pressure on election officials to ensure that all aspects of the election are well-run.
