The right to vote depends on the ability to vote.  For democracy to function properly, local, state, and federal governments must foster an election system that achieves the highest standards of accuracy, convenience, efficiency, and security.  This requires nonpartisan research that examines the most pressing election problems as well as efforts to help states improve election administration.  Pew works with state and local officials, the private sector, and others to identify and implement efficient, cost-effective solutions to voter registration issues, voting information obstacles, and election performance.
