Summary
"Concern about the integrity of American elections did not start with Trump's election, by any means; flaws in procedures have gradually grown during recent decades, initially amplifying with the 2000 Bush v. Gore Florida count. But, several major structural weaknesses clearly worsened by the 2016 campaign and its aftermath, thereby deepening party polarization over the rules of the game and corroding American trust in the electoral process. Disputes over elections have proliferated on all sides in Trump's America with heated debate about the key problems - whether the risks of electoral fraud, fake news, voter suppression, or Russian interference -and with no consensus about the right solutions. This book illuminates several major challenges observed during the 2016 U.S. elections, focusing upon concern about both the security and inclusiveness of the voter registration process in America. Given the importance of striking the right balance between security and inclusiveness in voter registration, this volume brings together legal scholars, political scientists, and electoral assistance practitioners to provide new evidence-based insights and policy-relevant recommendations"--
