This is a report was created by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in response to allegations that Florida voters were prevented from casting ballots or that their ballots were not counted in the controversial 2000 Presidential Election. The report concludes (broadly): “Some Americans, who wanted to vote, were eligible to vote, and who tried to vote, were nevertheless denied this precious right to vote. The error-plagued election in Florida must never be repeated. It is the duty of the federal government to promote the exercise of the right to vote when states fail to do so—thus making federal election reform measures essential. The Commission implores you to support appropriate legislation to ensure that the voices of all eligible voters are heard on Election Day.”
