Election Law @ Moritz

This posting is courtesy of Cornell Law School's InSite current awareness service.

Election Law is a product of the faculty at Ohio State University Moritz
College of Law. Launched on July 20, 2004, the site “offers information
and analysis useful to journalists, public officials, college and high school
teachers, lawyers and law professors, and citizens who wish to learn more
about the laws and legal uncertainties affecting the electoral process.”
Explanation of the electoral process is provided in the online book, The e-Book, on Election Law, which includes chapters on topics such as campaign practices and voting. Commentary on election-related themes is limited to Weekly Comments, a feature which is archived by title, author, and date.Additionally, current election news is highlighted, and made available to users via a weekly e-mail update. The site allows a basic keyword search.
