When it comes to legislative elections, entrenched incumbents typically face little competition, and excessive campaign spending often corrupts the democratic process. At the state level, a wide range of fixes have been introduced to remedy these problems - but do they actually make a difference? William Salka's comprehensive analysis of election dynamics in 49 states provides a thoughtful look at what legislatures should, and should not, do in pursuit of effective electoral reform.
