Description:

Even as many in the United States are focused on the threat of biological terrorism, some are turning their attention to last year's national crisis -- election difficulties and reform. Four reports, released this week by the General Accounting Office (GAO), give a wealth of information on how elections are currently conducted in the United States, what contributed toward votes going uncounted in the last presidential elections, and how various reform proposals should be evaluated. This first report, weighing in at 436 pages, covers the various stages of elections -- registration, absentee voting, election day administration, vote counts, and recounts. The report also addresses the potential to use the Internet in voting and the technologies employed in the November 2000 elections.
