Diagnosing Electoral Integrity

(p.60) 4 Diagnosing Electoral Integrity
Electoral Integrity in America

Michael Latner

Oxford University Press

Chapter 4 considers the sources of systematic evidence that are available to diagnose problems of American elections. Many claims and counterclaims about alleged malpractice are often heard in partisan debate and journalistic commentary—but during an era of low trust in the legacy news and isolating bubbles in social media, what could help to sort out fact from fiction? What are the pros and cons of alternative sources of evidence? This chapter compares electoral performance data on issues of voter registration permissiveness, ballot access, system security, and gerrymandering from several expert indices, institutional measures, and mass surveys.

Keywords:   electoral integrity, U.S. elections, expert surveys, measuring democracy
