Nearly a decade after the 2000 Presidential elections invited a firestorm of questions about the sanctity of our democratic process, there continues to be a heightened interest in the role of statewide elections officials, typically the state's Secretary of State. Much of that interest has resulted in overly critical coverage that focuses nearly exclusively on election errors while ignoring much of the noble and tireless efforts that individuals exert on a daily basis to ensure that American citizens benefit from an electoral system that ensures that our elections are democratic, inclusive, and accountable to the people."
