Challenge ends in Alaska US Senate race, Georgia panel to study expansion of vote centers

Friday, December 31, 2010

Alaska's US Senate race appears to have ended as 2010 winds down. Georgia's Secretary of State says that a new appointed election reform advisory panel will look at vote centers and ways to achieve cost savings, and New York's new voting system, and its implementation receive ongoing scrutiny.

All this and more in today's Voting News below.

United States: NLRB Continues March Toward Administrative Implementation of Processes to Assist Union Organizing
http://www.mondaq.com/unitedstates/article.asp?articlei...
Recent General Counsel memoranda announcing enhanced enforcement efforts and greater penalties for violations of the National Labor Relations Act (the Act), implement, in principle, some of the "enhanced penalties" provisions of EFCA. The NLRB's exploration of electronic voting and shortening of the campaigning period in a union election emulate some of the purposes of the "card check" provisions of EFCA. A recently proposed rule regarding mandatory posting of a notice of employees' right to organize, combined with the creation of a new unfair labor practice charge for the failure to post, seems consistent with the goal of stimulating organizing activity.
