The 2015 Supplement to the fifth edition of Election Law: Cases and Materials is up to date through the end of the Supreme Court’s October 2014 term. It includes an edited version of the Supreme Court’s new campaign finance case, McCutcheon v. FEC, an edited version of Shelby County v. Holder, and coverage of the Supreme Court's consideration of new redistricting cases from Alabama and Arizona, raising new questions about racial gerrymandering claims and the scope of state power to enact citizen redistricting commissions for congressional districts via voter initiative.
The supplement also considers developments in Voting Rights Act litigation after the Supreme Court’s Shelby County case, including new disputes over voter identification requirements, and covers litigation over citizenship and other state registration and voting requirements under the Elections Clause following the Supreme Court’s opinion in Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council. It also covers the Susan B. Anthony false campaign speech case.
