Election protection 2008 Primary Report: Looking Ahead to November
June 30, 2008 | Download
The 2008 primary process was unprecedented in length and swell of new voters. Unfortunately, the encouraging story of record turnout was tempered by voters reporting they were underserved by the infrastructure that supports the election process. This report highlights some of the common obstacles voters across the country faced, including under trained and insufficient poll workers, election machine breakdowns, registration roll problems, and confusion over voter identification requirements. Election Protection used this information to work in the months before the 2008 general election to work together with those responsible for administering elections to remedy and prevent these problems.
