Century’s research has raised serious questions about those claims while highlighting alternative approaches that promote voter participation without increasing the risk of fraud.

  • Lost in all the political spin around the elections this week is the issue of, once again, abominable turnout. The conventional wisdom is that this is always the case for an “off year” election, as though that were in itself some legitimate justification or reason not to care. The importance of our democracy tells us it is not. The situation in Virginia was particularly disheartening. But Virginia’s new governor, Robert McDonnell, can take a step towards doing something about that.

  • Saturday, January 19, was a historic day. For the first time in American history, Latinos had a major voice in picking the presidential nominees. For the first time, the state of Nevada held an early and therefore influential caucus. TCF's Democracy Fellow, Tova Andrea Wang, traveled to the state to provide first-hand accounts of the efforts there to reach out to the Latino community and get them to participate by the Democratic Party, the unions, and outside organizations.

It said “Know Your Caucus Rights.” Yet I quickly ascertained that the flyer really should have been called “Know Your Caucus Limitations.”

  • My day started with a hotel housekeeper directing me to the right place to enter the caucus site, a ballroom at the Luxor. She spoke little English. I asked her if she was going to caucus today.
