WaPo Editorializes in Favor of Bauer-Ginsberg Election Commission

Editorial: “But the commission is a good idea, for at least two reasons. First, the starting point for federal reform of election procedures, which are typically the responsibility of states and localities, is to establish evidence-based recommendations for state and local officials. That’s what the commission will be charged with doing — not imposing mandates. Not that there isn’t a good case for federal standard-setting, too; the commission’s findings could well provide a solid base on which to contemplate a more active federal role. Second, separating the politics of election reform from the policy has become extremely difficult.”
