The Law Library’s New Election Law Research Guide

As the November general election approaches, be prepared to explore the issues and topics surrounding election law by using the Moritz Law Library’s new Election Law Research Guide. The guide contains links and guidance on a wealth of election law resources, including primary sources, books and journals, data and statistics, blogs and websites, and interdisciplinary resources. The primary sources section provides helpful tips for locating relevant state and federal statutes as well as cases on particular election law topics. The books and journals portion lists key secondary sources on topics such as voting rights, election administration, and campaign finance. Included among the data and statistics are links to information on election results, redistricting maps, and lobbying and campaign finance disclosures. The guide draws on much of the material gathered by Dean Sara Sampson in the Election Law Research Guide that appears as an appendix to the casebook of Lowenstein, Hasen, and Tokaji.
