Election reform that passed in the US Congress now must be implemented by the individual states. Five key members of Secretary of State Matt Blunt’s office are training for most of this week, learning how the federal election reform law will be carried out at a state and local level. Blunt says one of the toughest parts of the new law to put in will be a centralized voter registration database and he says that will mean the legislature will have to get to work on the issue as well during the next legislative session. The state passed its own version of election reform that went into effect this year. Congress worked on election reform to correct problems that arose in the 2000 presidential election, primarily in Florida, but also in St. Louis.
