For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
October 16, 2002

Statement by the President

The right to vote is the foundation of our democracy. I commend the House and Senate for passing legislation to improve our election process. The legislation is consistent with the principles outlined by the bipartisan Ford-Carter Commission that respect the primacy of state and local governments, and envision a limited, but responsible role for the federal government. I look forward to signing these important election reforms into law.
