incident reports via the web from multiple organizations, store these
reports in a database, serve data to public reporting systems

- Information-age democracies depend on technology. New, more responsive forms of governance are possible, but we become dependent on election technologies that sometimes fail. For over ten years, CPSR has conducted projects on the use of electoral computing. CPSR members have observed elections, investigated irregularities, contributed to standards documents, and been consultants to election commissions. This issue examines how technology has changed democracy. Four CPSR correspondents report on the changing technological face of democracy, from war-torn Africa to the Internet.
