The League prides itself on being knowledgeable about voting systems and voting problems. For many years League members have kept watch on local and national elections to be sure they are honest and well-managed. Now a new book has been published which offers background information on how campaign managers can manipulate voting systems to ensure their candidate wins an election. According to a N.Y. Times review William Poundstone’s Gaming the Vote gives us far more background than was available previously. It is a book that will be well worth reading in this year of vigorous campaigning and important elections.
