Election Reform

The Century Foundation has been at the forefront of efforts to reform the voting system since the issue entered the national discourse after the 2000 presidential election. In 2001, the foundation cosponsored the National Commission on Federal Election Reform.  The Commission's final report modeled for important measures in the Help America Vote Act. Our current work in this area focuses on the promises and potential pitfalls of future elections, and on what that means for our democratic process.
