US electoral registration: Subject to grave errors   3WS55shgW7B029uFjGCrITl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBV9ip2J1EIeUzA9paTSgKmv

With Americans heading to the polls in 2012, determined to take part in homespun democracy, millions of votes may end up rejected or thrown away when election night comes – all because of the specific voting registration system.

 

­The US is always quick to criticize the election process in other countries, as it has been since the presidential election in Russia last week.

But in a few months America will have to elect a new national leader using a 19th-century, paper-based voter registration system that has previously left the nation’s electoral rolls plagued by errors and inaccuracies.
