Shirley Malcom of AAAS named to election reform commission

Shirley Malcom, the head of Education and Human Resources at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), has been named to an elite panel convened by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James A. Baker III to develop reforms for America's troubled system of voting.

Malcom will join 17 other top political, civic and academic leaders in a project that will explore the integrity and inclusiveness of the federal electoral process and the technology that supports it. After public hearings and input from a range of election experts, the Commission on Federal Election Reform is aiming to deliver its report and recommendations in September.

"Dr. Malcom is a distinguished, world-renowned scientist with a wide range of experiences internationally and on many foundation boards," said Robert A. Pastor, the commission's executive director and vice president of international affairs at American University. "Among the many issues that the commission will address are those that deal with electronic voting machines and those that deal with civic education. A scientist like Dr. Malcom, with such vast experience in education, will be invaluable as the commission considers those issues." Among other members of the bipartisan panel are:

Tom Daschle, a former U.S. senator from South Dakota who served as the Senate minority leader; Robert Mosbacher, the former Commerce Department secretary and past chairman of the Republican National Committee who served as national finance chairman for the election campaigns of Presidents Gerald Ford and George H. W. Bush; Rita DiMartino, formerly the vice president of congressional relations for AT&T, and now the principal U.S. delegate to the Inter-American Commission of Women; and former U.S. Rep. Lee Hamilton, who served as vice chairman of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States and now is president and director of the Woodrow Wilson International
