Election Law Committee

The Election Law Committee focuses on election law, policy, and procedures including voter education and voting rights. It is composed of practitioners from law firms, good government groups, political parties, and government boards and agencies, many of whom have worked in this area for decades.

The Committee is active in commenting on proposed revisions of election law and local election rules, provides comments and reports to state and local boards and other government entities, and regularly provides election law training to candidates and the public. It also provides a valuable forum for practitioners with differing views to share ideas.

The Committee focuses on a variety of topics, including ballot access, administration of elections, redistricting, and campaign finance regulation.
