The Standing Committee on Election Law is pleased to provide you with a list of pending and recent cases litigating election procedures for the 2020 election. Given the Coronavirus, the prevalence of early and mail-in voting, and the hyper-partisanship of our politics, it’s an unusual year. And the following list is an unusually long docket. We hope you will find it helpful as you navigate this complicated election year. In addition, you might also be interested in an article highlighting the numerous unsigned orders of the Supreme Court (New York Times, October 26: Adam Liptak, “Missing from Supreme Court’s Election Cases: Reasons for its Rulings.”).
The Committee is grateful to advisory committee member Frances Goins and her associate, Lauren Garretson, who authored this memo. Given the press of time, we hope you will be forgiving of any inadvertent errors.
