Rethinking the Vote

The Politics and Prospects of American Election Reform

Edited by Ann N. Crigler, Marion R. Just, and Edward J. McCaffery

Providing a useful mix of quantitative and qualitative data, Rethinking the Vote centers on what can and should be learned about the processes of voting. Using the 2000 presidential election as a starting point, this collection of essays puts forth a constructive effort to learn from what transpired and to offer potential solutions for the future. Featuring work by leading academics and participants in the real-world drama of the 2000 election, it examines the legal, political, and institutional problems of administering elections in the U.S. The book begins and ends with questions about the prospects and possibilities for reform. It takes a consistently pragmatic approach that recognizes both the constraints on and the opportunities for change in America's elaborate constitutional and political structures.
