Carnegie Corporation report looks back on election reform
The Carnegie Corporation of New York recently released this report summarizing the election reform work it has funded over the past eight years, following the 2000 Presidential election and Bush v. Gore. The report provides an historical overview of a pivotal time in U.S. democracy, featuring comments and stories from many of the people and organizations that Carnegie has supported. It also contains a fascinating map (on Page 7) of the 50 United States and the circumstances under which voters in those states who are felons can get their voting rights reinstated, produced by the Brennan Center for Justice.
