Periodically throughout the semester we will be highlighting new books in the Law Library collection on the Library Blog. Today’s focus is on America Votes! A Guide to Modern Election Law and Voting Rights, edited by Benjamin E. Griffith.
America Votes! is an excellent resource for lawyers, professors, and election officials in advance of the November elections as it offers a snapshot of current key election and voting rights issues. The book is divided in to three parts: the first part focuses on redistricting, the second on the Voting Rights Act, and the third on registration, ballot access, and reform measures. Chapters within each part are written by experienced practitioners and address topics such as legislative redistricting, the impact of non-citizens on voting rights issues, electoral college reform at the state level, and implementation of voting technology.
