    I was just reading in the current issue of the American Prospect (which is devoted almost exclusively to election reform) that we should look to other countries for guidance. The point being: other countries have just as much experience conducting elections (although never perfect), so why reinvent the wheel? Why not just adapt the best practices and modify to suit a large population such as the States?

    Another interesting idea they highlighted was instant run-off voting and of course, scraping the Electoral College.

    If anyone gets a chance it is a really compelling issue and discusses the ideas in-depth.

    Jaded Reality... I've had enough spin for today thanks...
