Just in time for Mother’s Day, you can buy two amazingly good books on elections. OK, this is a shameless plug for both of our new books.
- First, you can buy Electronic Elections: The Perils and Promise of Digital Democracy (only $21.56 from Amazon!) Here is what Tom Mann said about the book: Recent debates about voting technology and election reform have generated more heat than light, often leading to myopic views of security and premature policy fixes. Alvarez and Hall provide a constructive alternative–a calm, rational, data-tested, risk-based analysis of electronic voting. Their book is a model of how rigorous research can constructively inform public discussion and the policy process.
- Second, you will want to buy Election Fraud: Deterring and Detecting Electoral Manipulation ($26.95 from Amazon!) This book was edited with Susan Hyde at Yale and has an introduction by Paul DeGregorio and Ray Martinez, both former EAC Commissioners.
