This is important. I have commented before on keeping electoral reform in the forefront of our concerns. I have also thought that it seems a no-brainer to get Jimmy Carter involved, as he is one of the world's leading election authorities through the Carter Center. Of course, Republicans won't listen to even a beloved Democrat without Republican input. That is exactly what American University's Center for Democracy and Election Management is planning to do. Provided this can capture the attention it deserves, this effort could be a huge push forward to getting true electoral reform to the forefront of the debate.
