A Page 1A article yesterday might have left a misimpression about the views of Tova Wang, an elections scholar at the nonpartisan Century Foundation, on elections litigation.

Wang's full comments were: "In a sense, within reason, it's not a bad thing, because you're trying to insure the integrity of the final vote total. But it can undermine confidence in the electoral system, the more time it takes."

Speaking about whether either party benefits more from such litigation, Wang said: "I don't think anybody benefits. I think it really harms everyone. It undermines democracy itself, and that's just bad for the country."
