Obama Plans Voting Commission


Obama Plans Voting Commission

President Obama will announce a bipartisan presidential voting commission to focus on improving the Election Day experience, the Huffington Post has learned.

"The commission is one of a number of efforts the Obama administration is making to address the problems that plagued voting on Election Day 2012. The commission, which will focus specifically on Election Day issues and not broader voting reform, will likely be co-chaired by one Republican and one Democratic lawyer, according to one of the sources."

1. Why not broader voting reform?

Some (most?) of the problems that plagued people in Election 2012 are largely the same problems that have been plaguing our system since at least 2000 (and maybe even longer), namely attempts to gain political advantage by disenfranchising Democratic-leaning voters one way or another.
