With thousands of new voters adding their names to the voter rolls across the country, it’s not hard to imagine a few election law disputes blooming on election day and afterward. When judges look for legal authority on how to handle such issues, they may be turning to materials prepared at The Election Law Program at the College of William & Mary.
Working with the National Center for State Courts, the program published a 12-chapter election law benchbook that discusses and analyzes election law issues and the judicial relief available for election law violations. The program also produced a series of Web-based lectures designed to educate judges and journalists about the fundamentals of election law.
