When I worked for the National Commission on Federal Election Reform, we contacted the Federal Election Commission’s Office of Election Administration to get all the background research we could. There was a person there who many of you know–Peg Sims–who was just an amazing resource of information on elections. When she came over to the EAC, was fortunate to work with her on a research project and was able to get to know her better.
Unfortunately, Peg died yesterday; she had been battling cancer for quite a long time. I think many people will miss her knowledge, her enthusiasm, and her wonderful personality.
