The first edition of Election Law was the first modern casebook on the subject of election law. Now in its fifth edition, the leading election law casebook covers the right to vote and voter turnout, legislative districting, the Voting Rights Act, racial gerrymandering cause of action, ballot propositions, constitutional rights and obligations of political parties, bribery, regulation of campaign speech, campaign finance, and election administration.
The streamlined and student-friendly fifth edition of Election Law fully covers developments in election law in the 2012 election season including: extensive coverage of Citizens United, super PACs, and other campaign finance developments; emerging issues in voting rights and redistricting, including coverage of the Texas redistricting and voter identification cases; and new coverage of issues in judicial elections. It will continue to include perspectives from law and political science, and is appropriate in both law and political science courses. The extensive campaign finance coverage makes the book appropriate for a campaign finance seminar as well.
The Supplement is up-to-date through the end of the Supreme Court’s October 2013 term. It includes an edited version of of the Supreme Court’s new campaign finance case, McCutcheon v. FEC, an edited version of Shelby County v. Holder, and an edited version of the lower court decision in the Alabama redistricting cases which the Supreme Court will hear in the October 2014 term.
The Supplement also considers developments in Voting Rights Act litigation after the Supreme Court’s Shelby County case and covers litigation over citizenship and other state registration and voting requirements under the Elections Clause following the Supreme Court’s opinion last term in Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council. It also covers the new Susan B. Anthony false campaign speech case.
