Barriers to Federal Election Fixes

Pam Fessler filed this story for NPR's Morning Edition this morning on some of the barriers that the federal government is likely to face if it takes on election reform.  From the story:

"We don't want to turn over the running of our elections to some bureaucrats in Washington," [South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant] said.  "We want to keep that at the local level with local elected officials."

. . .

Doug Chapin, an election expert with the University of Minnesota, worries about the impact of a partisan national fight on these often bipartisan state efforts.
