GOVT 83.16 Voting Irregularities and Issues in Electoral Reform

This political research seminar will provide students with an introduction to the study of voting irregularities like uncounted votes, recounts, and voting technology problems.  These sets of issues, among many others, are prominent in ongoing academic and policy debates on electoral reform.  Readings in the seminar will focus on the history of American voting, historical election disputes, the 2000 presidential election, the 2004 presidential election, and the 2004 Washington gubernatorial election.  Beyond its readings the seminar will require all students to write a research paper on an ostensibly problematic aspect of voting that affects American elections.  Prerequisite: Government 10.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website.
