1. Analyses of the voting results:
What were the turnout and voting patterns?
How can we understand any changes?
Was this a realigning election?
We provide some sources of data and analysis here.
2. Analyses of the campaigns
What can we learn from the campaign strategies and tactics deployed in this election cycle?
3. Voting and electoral reform issues
What were the voting problems in this cycle? How and how effectively were they addressed?
What long-term issues still require debate - eg redistricting ?
Discuss voting legislation and issues
We also provide some basic sources on the following issues and topics: key legislation, voter suppression, electronic voting machine problems, use and misuse of provisional ballots and undervoting.
Go to the forum to discuss proposals.
