"The Worst and Best in Election Reform, 2005"

Tova Andrea Wang, of The Century Foundation, describes "The Worst and Best in Election Reform, 2005 (Because There Was More Bad than Good)": So many grinches this year, Who-ville is more worried than ever about its democracy. The Georgia state legislature. The Department of Justice. Tom Delay. It was enough to make us believers in voting rights think we would be left with nothing under the tree. But despite a commitment to reform two sizes too small in so many quarters, there were at least some indications that 2006 might bring progress on elections after all. -- The Worst and Best in Election Reform, 2005 (Because There Was More Bad than Good)

The good/bad news for me is that Alabama is not on either list.

Comments

I would add an 11th worst: the Georgia re-redistricting of congressional districts. Maybe not as bad as Tom DeLay's work in Texas, but nonethless awful.
