Summary The sensational presidential election that dragged Florida into the media spotlight and made "butterfly ballot" and "chad" household words caused an uproar over the malfunctioning mechanics and overall validity of America's electoral process. What is being done to see that major voting irregularities cease to occur in Florida and throughout the nation? In this program, David Gergen, adviser to four former presidents; David Leahy, supervisor of elections for Miami-Dade County; and Mark Seibel, managing editor of The Miami Herald, suggest ways to reform America's voting system.
