The United States has reached a crossroads in election reform. Before 2000, few people-aside from the state and local officials charged with running elections-paid much attention to such arcane matters as voting technology, provisional ballots, voter identification, and voter registration. Since then, we have seen unprecedented efforts at reform, most notably the federal Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA).
