In 2022, The American Law Institute facilitated the formation of the Bipartisan Working Group, a diverse group of leaders  who set out to create a proposed set of Ethical Standards for Election Administration. The group has now issued its recommendations, offering a clear articulation of the role of ethical standards in guiding the conduct of elections. The report emerges amid a time of contentious debates about our voting system, helping to focus us back to the ethical standards that build confidence in the democratic process.
