Letter from the Chair
The business of running elections is a year-round enterprise. The ABA Standing Committee on Election Law works all year, every year, to improve the administration of elections by compiling best practices, organizing timely programming, proposing ABA policies, and disseminating the results of our work to election officials nationwide.
The Committee is a bipartisan group by design, and operates by consensus. Our members are united in their commitment to the rule of law and to a fair and inclusive democratic process. Recent elections have shown that, despite more than two centuries of American elections, there is plenty of room for improvement. Voter education is a crucial component of our work, as is the role of lawyers in ensuring an engaged and informed electorate.
Our advocacy has supported many improvements to the electoral process. New ideas are always welcome. We are proud and committed to a collaborative engagement with the full spectrum of views on matters of election law.
