"Prior to the disputed 2000 presidential election, for most Americans the administration of elections was never a concern. Largely, the administration of elections, the technologies used in the process, and the general procedures used were typically of concern only to election officials, candidates running for office and those managing their races, and a very few academics. This volume begins to fill that vacuum by bringing together in one book a number of essays that citizens, academics, election officials, policy makers, and other stakeholders can read to become better informed about procedures that used today to audit elections and election administration, and to learn more about new approaches to improve existing election audit procedures. "-- Provided by publisher
"Since the 2000 election, American politics has been obsessed with the question of fraud in, and accuracy, of election results. The 36 days of controversy in Florida in the 2000 election - with changing results, ballot problems, ballot counting discrepancies, and the issues with the chain of custody of ballots - illustrated to the public the challenges that can occur in elections. This book shows how, by applying simple concepts used in auditing, elections in the U.S. and internationally can be made more transparent, more accurate, and better managed. The techniques are presented in easy to understand chapters that can be applied in elections today"-- Provided by publisher
