Interesting Stuff at Moritz Election Law Site

Ned Foley comments on the invalidation of 500 provisional ballots in the OH-15 election, and what this could mean for other close elections. He is concerned as well about an equal protection violation under Bush v. Gore. Terry Enns asks if we really need to know election results on election night. And the main Moritz page remains an indispensable resource to follow the still open counts and recounts in Election 2006. On Nov. 7, Ned wrote that we should be thankful if it is all over by Thanksgiving. Of course, on a national level it is "all over;" control of Congress has been settled. But in a number of election races, because of election administration snafus, voting machine problems, and simply the time it takes to process a large number of absentee and provisional ballots, things remain unsettled. My hope is that we can use some of the problems uncovered in the 2006 election to fix things before 2008. If that happened, we'd have a lot to be thankful for at Thanksgiving 2008.
