The Center for the Study of Politics and Governance at the Humphrey School asked LWVSP to share the following information about a course that may be of interest to our members:
The engine room of American democracy is the fair and impartial conduct of elections. Lately however, headlines trumpet the breakdown and challenges to fairly administering elections -- a national fight over voter ID laws, the uncertain future with a narrowed Voting Rights Act, and long Election Day lines. President Obama’s observation of the nation’s election system-- “we need to fix that--” expresses a view that is shared across the political spectrum. 

For a great introduction to the world of election administration, register for Humphrey's PA 5980: Topics in American Election Administration, taught by national elections expert Doug Chapin.
