Election Law – New Print Resources

In this post, we are highlighting some of our newer print resources on general election law.

Election law has become increasingly complex, as our politics have become more partisan and our electorate more diverse. There are several, newer print resources in our collection that are a great introduction to this field of law:

Goldfeder’s Modern Election Law (2013)
Written and edited by Jerry H. Goldfeder ; Additional Contributors: Daniel M. Burstein, et al.

This resource is frequently consulted by experts in the field, and it is a hot commodity in libraries around this time of year. We have the most recent supplement (2013) on the shelves. 

America Votes!: A Guide to Modern Election Law and Voting Rights (2012)
Edited by Benjamin E. Griffith

This guide, published by the American Bar Association, addresses the election law questions which are currently or imminently about to be addressed by the courts.

Election Law In a Nutshell (2013)
Written by Daniel P. Tokaji

Part of the popular “Nutshell” series published by West, this book provides introductory insight to the growing and complex field of election law.

These resources are just the latest of the print resources you can consult in our collection to introduce yourself to election law. Check back soon for our next blog post to highlight resources on this topic.

In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
