Fair Elections

Before the election, I wrote about some fundamental problems with the American Elections system. The NY Times has a short op-ed today about setting standard for fair elections. I'm happy to see that some people are still concerned about the process of voting. It's also encouraing to know that there is such a thing as the Election Assitance Commission, but I hope this commission doesn't just come up with half-baked suggestions which don't address the fundamental problems.

It's amazing to think that news about fair elections in Ukraine and Iraq hasn't gotten people more riled up about fair elections here. Let's hope the pressure remains and real solutions are brought forward to ensure fair voting during the upcoming mid-term congressional elections.
