New ABA book answers questions about modern election law and voting rights issues

CHICAGO, Dec. 19, 2019 — The fourth edition of  “America Votes!” is a timely resource for lawyers, professors, election officials and anyone interested in election and voting rights issues, including lawyers working on voter ID laws, redistricting, election cybersecurity, gerrymandering and campaign finance.

This book, sponsored by the ABA Section of State and Local Government Law, brings together accomplished practitioners and academic experts from all along the political spectrum in a way that promotes analysis and debate. As the 2020 presidential election nears, the book offers defined analysis for often complex election and voting rights issues.                       

“America Votes!” offers different perspectives on voter suppression, voter fraud, current voting rights litigation, among other issues. It also offers remedies for today’s most pressing voting challenges, including voter qualifications, participation and overall rights to vote.

 “This book is a superb resource for practitioners and anyone seeking a firmer grasp of the election process that is so vital to our democracy,” said Thurgood Marshall, Jr., partner at Morgan, Lewis, & Bockius, LLP in Washington, D.C. “Building on the clear and comprehensive framework set forth in previous volumes, Ben Griffith and Jack Young have loaded this new edition with comprehensive and updated sourcing and nuanced analysis by a diverse array of leaders in the field.”
