Publisher's Note: Although most Americans probably missed it, many others outside the US took notice when the Carter Institute, the world's most respected arbiter of free and fair elections, failed to certify the Bush v. Gore 2000 presidential election. The US election system had fallen behind much of the rest of the democratic world in its most important political process.
This week's issue describes how we might bring elections and voting into the 21st century, enabling increased fairness and objectivity in the ongoing struggle for real democratic government. Everyone Counts has just been selected as a FiReStarter Company for 2014, and this is largely because of the vital need to get the voting process "right." The importance of egality, inclusion, and security in the election process is central to the process of democratic government. Getting this done is the prime focus behind the company.
