In my March column, I reported on the election reform movement that sprang out of problems observed in the 2004 presidential election. As a result, a group called Gathering To Save Our Democracy organized a conference called the "National Conference on Election Reform." I was honored to be invited to speak on how quality principles must be applied to the election processes to produce viable and sustainable election reform. Statisticians, computer scientists, election workers and concerned citizens shared analyses of data that revealed significant problems.

Robert Koehler, an award-winning journalist, editor at Tribune Media and nationally syndicated writer, captured the essence of the conference in this guest editorial, "The Silent Scream of Numbers." Robert has given me permission to publish it here.
