Obama Meets with Election Law Odd Couple



Official White House Photo by Pete Souza(WASHINGTON) -- After a snow-filled Tuesday, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will meet with members of the Presidential Commission on Election Administration at the White House, where the odd couple of election law, Ben Ginsberg and Bob Bauer, are presenting their findings for streamlining elections.

The meeting comes nearly one year after Obama appointed his counsel, Bauer, and Mitt Romney’s lawyer, Ginsberg, to lead a commission to study how ballots can be cast and counted more efficiently. It stems from the long lines at polling places in 2012, where some people waited for hours.

Don’t look for any major reforms when they appear at the White House on Wednesday, but rather a modest set of customer-service friendly recommendations to make it easier to vote and how to keep lines shorter.
