Each presidential election, as well as state and local elections, raises its own set of issues. In 2000, it was the need for standards for the counting of votes in Florida (as well as other jurisdictions). In subsequent elections, issues of voting machine accuracy, registration, voter identification, long lines to vote, and counting continue to exist and affect the way voting in America occurs, and is perceived to occur. On top of these issues, fundamental rights involving campaign speech and redistricting raise questions about the current state of elections. This town hall will allow participants to voice their thoughts on the current state of our electoral process.
