Voter ID on Trial: Applewhite v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and State of Texas v. Holder

Over 180 bills restricting voting have been introduced in 41states from January 2011 to the present, and of those, 16 states have now passed restrictive voting laws that will have a significant impact on the 2012 election. One of these states is Pennsylvania, where a constitutional challenge was recently mounted in state court against that state’s voter ID law.

I’m excited and honored to serve as Chair of the Section of State and Local Government Law. Thank you for affording me the opportunity to work with talented attorneys who address the kaleidoscope of legal issues impacted by state and local government laws.

At its luncheon on August 3 during the ABA Annual Meeting in Chicago, the Section’s Jefferson Fordham Society honored professional excellence in the practice of state and local government law by presenting its annual Jefferson Fordham Awards.
