"There are too many sites and too many problems for lawyers and trained poll watchers to catch all, or even most, of the problems. Furthermore, their efforts will be focused on just a few battleground states. Voting is a right and responsibility for all Americans, not just those who live in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, and a few other states. Wouldn't it be great if millions of Americans joined in the effort to improve our democracy by monitor[ing] polling places this November? There's an app for that."

In June 2010, 25 leaders of government and industry convened to Harvard University to assess the move to "Government 2.0" to date; to share insight to its limits and possibilities, as well as its enablers and obstacles; and to assess the road ahead. This is a report of that meeting, made possible by a grant from Microsoft.
