“From Registration to Recounts Revisited: Developments in the Election Ecosystems of Five Midwestern States Released!”

EL@M: “We invite you to read From Registration to Recounts Revisited: Developments in the Election Ecosystems of Five Midwestern States, a retrospective review primarily of the 2008 elections in five key Midwestern states – Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. This study is a sequel to From Registration to Recounts, the widely-acclaimed comprehensive study of the election systems of these states, in which the authors set out to study how five key Midwestern states had responded to the Help America Vote Act of 2002, and to the increased attention that matters of election administration had received in the wake of the 2000 disputed presidential election. This retrospective study, like the original, makes clear that election reform remains an uncompleted task more than two full presidential election cycles after Bush v. Gore.”

Timely and important.
