The Internet offers a variety of ways for the public to express views and take part in elections. Indeed, in the last column, you were informed about how a federal appellate court has blessed vote-swapping sites. This provides a way for voters in different states to ensure the same number of votes for their respective candidates while in the process helping one of their candidates beat yet a third candidate. For example, in the 2000 presidential election, supporters of Gore and Nader could swap votes to help Gore try to beat Bush in hotly contested states. And the most recent column reports that political bloggers can breathe a sigh of relief, as the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has just resolved two complaints by determining that Internet blogging activities are not within FEC regulation because such activities fall within media and volunteer exemptions to the Federal Election Campaign Act (the Act).
