Favorite Sampling of Legislation in the History of Elections:
- HAVA – Help America Vote Act. Passed after the 2000 Election disasters. Established the EAC (Election Assistance Commission), allowed provisional ballots to be cast, and enforced need for electronic databases of registered voters in all states.
- Voting Rights Act of 1965 – Expelled the use of literacy tests for determining right to vote, among other things. Most importantly, helped reverse the trend of black disfranchisement tactics occurring in the South since Reconstruction.
