ELB Podcast Episode 6. Nate Persily: Can the Supreme Court Handle Social Science In Election Cases?

Can the Supreme Court handle social science evidence in election law cases? Will lack of good data determine the outcome of the Supreme Court’s upcoming one person, one vote decision in Evenwel v. Abbott? What role will and should evidence play in assessing questions such as the constitutionality of McCain-Feingold’s soft money ban or Texas’s strict voter identification law.

On Episode 6 of the ELB Podcast, we talk to law professor and political scientist Nate Persily of Stanford Law School, one of the country’s leading redistricting and election law experts.
