Election Law: Legislation and Controversies
Editor's Welcome - November 4, 2008
Dear Readers,
Thank you for your interest in the Legislation and Policy Roundtable, a recently
established student publication and panel series at the American University
Washington College of Law. Our goal is to provide a legal analysis of current
legislative initiatives and policies through our electronic publication and to
encourage meaningful debate through our Roundtable Live panel series.
Since the 2000 elections, Congress passed significant reforms to fundraising
practices, permissible voting technology, and voter registration procedures.
When implementing these reforms, the practical difficulties of simultaneously
ensuring all voters have access to the polls while protecting against voter fraud
became evident. As a country, we continued to debate the utility of public
financing, the role of the Internet, and the necessity of the Electoral College.
These issues have played an important role in the campaigns leading up to
today's elections and likely will continue playing a role in future elections. We
hope you find this issue of the Legislation & Policy Roundtable publication to be
a useful resource on election law and an important contribution to the ongoing
debates about election law reform.
Creating this new publication and panel series has required a great deal of time,
dedication, and patience by all involved. I am extremely thankful to Lauren
Gilius and Elizabeth Chernow, who have been invaluable as co-founders in
creating the Legislation and Policy Roundtable. The Roundtable would not exist
without their vision and endless enthusiasm. We are also thankful to Patrick
Renckly, our publications editor, for his incredible attention to detail and
extremely hard work in developing the Roundtable's inaugural publication. Our
publication would not be possible without our diligent editors and writers,
whose passion for politics and incredible talent have made this initial publication
a success. Finally, we are all thankful to Professor Jamin Raskin, our advisor and
mentor, for his endless guidance and support.
For more information, we welcome you to join us for a Roundtable Live panel
discussion on How Efforts at Combating Fraud and Disenfranchisement
