Election Law

Elections are the bedrock of the formation of American government. And so they are subject to considerable regulation and government oversight. Candidates and initiatives must satisfy certain criteria to be placed on the ballot. Money spent must be reported by the appropriate entity, whether a candidate, PAC, political party, or individual. Advocacy speech must meet specific legal requirements. And election officials and voters are subject to legally-required registration and ballot-casting processes.

  • Independent expenditure and contribution reporting requirements,
  • Ballot initiative requirements and processes,
  • Ballot qualifications,
  • Voting rights, requirements, and procedures,
  • Campaign advertising and false or misleading speech,
  • Hatch Act compliance, and
