Presidential Commission on Election Administration Presents Recommendations to President Obama
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, 2014 – The Presidential Commission on Election Administration today presented President Obama with a series of recommendations designed to help local and state elections officials improve all voters’ experience in casting their ballots. The Report is based on a six-month study conducted by the 10-Member Commission of the problems that have plagued voting in the past and the issues that will confront the American voter in the future.
The Commission concluded unanimously that the “problems that hinder the efficient administration of elections are both identifiable and solvable.” The Report offers certain key recommendations and numerous administrative best practices to improve the problem areas identified in the President’s Executive Order charging the Commission.Ah yes, the use of Executive Order. It is no accident that Barack Obama so recently came out declaring himself ready to expand his use of Executive Power even further in 2014 – just as it is no accident Executive Power is a foundational component of this newly formed Election Commission.
