Doug Chapin comments on election reform possibilities.
But that money is drying up; many of those machines are more than a decade old and in need of expensive maintenance that states and localities can't afford. That means there will be fewer machines at each polling site. Voters can also expect to see fewer polling places and shorter early-voting periods than what they're used to says Doug Chapin, who leads the election administration program at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
