    but I still think it would be more fair to voters to have clear and consistent procedures.

      If the federal govt provided funding for elections then they would be allowed to attach strings to that money.  This is how we get national standards for other explicit state-rights issues like education and highways.

      The fact that states could opt out of the federal money and then run their own elections as they saw fit would be enough to preserve the constitutionality since submitting to the standards is a voluntary act.
