I’m pleased to announce that the new 7th edition of Election Law–Cases and Materials is being printed now and will be ready in time for spring classes. Here is a detailed table of contents. The accompanying teacher’s manual should be ready in early December. Here’s a description of the new edition, and please reach out with any questions:
Cases and Materials
Forthcoming December 2021 • casebound
Tags: Election Law
2022 Teacher’s Manual forthcoming
The new student-friendly seventh edition of Election Law: Cases and Materials fully covers developments in election law through 2021, including extensive coverage of recent partisan and racial gerrymandering challenges; campaign finance cases in the Citizens United era; and challenges to new voter identification laws and other voting restrictions. It continues to include perspectives from law and political science, and it 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.
New material in this edition includes coverage of the Supreme Court’s most recent cases on the Voting Rights Act and vote denial (Brnovich), donor disclosure and the First Amendment (AFPF v. Bonta), campaign contributions (Thompson v. Hebdon), bribery (Kelly v. United States), and the Electoral College (Chiafalo v. Washington); discussion of controversies and litigation surrounding the 2020 election and COVID-19-related election administration changes; and a completely rewritten section on partisan gerrymandering, including an edited version of the Supreme Court’s June 2019 decision in Rucho v. Common Cause.
