    Shortly, the United States will elect a new president as well as new members to the Senate and House of Representatives. These new members will affect the ability of the incoming president to lead effectively.  In addition many State and local elections will also take place that could also affect the face of government.

    During 2016 the United States has seen positive milestones with the nomination of the first female presidential nominee.  However there have also been not so pleasant developments, the unprecedented and (and some say) unconstitutional refusal of the Senate to allow a sitting President to appoint a new Supreme Court Justice. 

    This book, written by experts in their field, speaks volumes about the complexity of the federal electoral system in the United States and how that system is inextricably bound in its courts.  Oftentimes this relationship between the political world and the judiciary is uncomfortable.

    Specific issues addressed in this edition include:

    How to defeat voter suppression initiatives
    The use of census data to prove citizenship in voting rights litigation
    The increasing importance of "early voting" in all elections
    The administrative challenges presented by recounts and post-election contest and audits
    Whether the Federal Election Commission is fulfilling its mandate on campaign finance disclosures
    The challenges presented by on-person, one-vote redistricting and much more.
