Election Law Society launches 'State of Elections' blog

The Election Law Society at the William & Mary Law School is pleased to announce the launch of “StateofElections.com,” an election law blog focusing on the development of state election laws.

Beginning Monday, November 16th the public will be able to access the blog online.  StateofElections.com will feature interviews with election law decision-makers, student-developed content, and guest bloggers discussing developments in state and local election laws. New posts will be added Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The mission of StateofElections.com is to discuss laws and practices that govern our democracy. We aim to write about voting in all corners of America -the fifty states and the territories -and to shed light on the patchwork of law that organizes the expression of the opinion of our citizens.

The purpose of this blog is not to advance any political agenda, candidate, or party, but rather to inform our readers and ourselves about election law and the people that make it happen.

Founded in 2006, the Election Law Society at William and Mary Law School is a nonpartisan student organization dedicated to studying the legal issues raised through the American electoral process. The Election Law Society is the student division of the Election Law Program, a joint project of the College of William & Mary and the National Center for State Courts.
