I know they have a bad habit of pushing for computerized voting around the world...

Election Reform Project

IFES currently assists the efforts of both electoral officials and civil society stakeholders to advance comprehensive electoral reform programs for greater legitimacy to the electoral process. Specifically, IFES focuses on building the capacity of the COMELEC to modernize, conduct credible elections, and promote mechanisms that build internal capacities and support transparent administrative practices. Additionally, IFES engages civil society in developing effective advocacy and cooperation to retain gains in reform and equip citizens and COMELEC with skills and knowledge to support implementation of successful elections in the long run.

The IFES Board includes such luminaries as Kenneth Blackwell and Steny Hoyer (1 of the 4 authors of HAVA)
