Quality of Election Administration Varies Among Great Lake States

New Hampshire's decision last week finally setting January 8, 2008, as the date for its presidential primary means that the country is barely a month away from the opening of the 2008 election season. With absentee voting to begin in just a few weeks, this is the perfect time to ask how well our election systems will withstand the pressures they will face in 2008.

For the past year and a half, Election Law @ Moritz has conducted a comprehensive study of the election systems of five key Midwestern states: Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois. The results of this study, From Registration to Recounts, will be released in both hard copy and electronic formats on December 4, one week from today.
