Guest Host: Steve Roberts

The hotly contested presidential election of 2000 prompted widespread demands for election reform. While many groups have studied the problem and made recommendations, little has changed in laws governing poll worker training, voting equipment, ballot-counting, and other weak links in the voting process. A panel talks about the efforts to get voting reform off the ground.
