Elections are the only mechanism by which citizens can hope to maintain effective control over their government. It is obviously crucial that elections work well. Equally obviously, elections have not been working at all well. It is both critical and urgent that airtight integrity of elections be achieved and maintained. Citizens must always be able to trust election results implicitly. With the proper and careful use of modern technology, it should be possible to have accurate, final, trusted results within a half hour of polls closing. Why are we waiting days or even weeks for results that many do not trust? In this course, you will learn what is required to achieve such a high level of integrity, where there are deficiencies and what is necessary to get our house in order.
