Election Reform Project

The extraordinarily lengthy and controversial resolution of the 2000 U.S. presidential election revealed that our electoral system is in serious need of reform. Congress responded by passing the Help America Vote Act of 2002, state and federal legislators proposed additional laws and amendments, and scholars and advocates produced a flurry of research, reports, and proposals.

The AEI-Brookings Election Reform Project, operating between 2005 and 2010, synthesized that research and bridged together the research and policy communities.
