ballot to the optical-scan and touch-screen systems.The book also explores alternative voting systems,
such as preference voting and proportional representation, and compares the U.S. electoral process with
the voting systems of selected European democracies. Campaign and Election Reform, Second Edition

it, and how it might be fixed.
